Applications Now Being Accepted for the Fall 2022 Cohort

The application cycle for the Fall 2022 cohort is now open. You can apply here. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis starting in December. Applicants are encouraged to apply by February 1, allowing them to participate in a comprehensive LHE interview day in March that is intended to match applicants with available internships. For applications received after February 1, you can still interview for internships, but interviews will be done individually with each internship coordinator. The final application deadline is July 1, 2022.

Innovative Approach to a Master’s in Higher Education Administration

Become a transformative leader by earning a master’s in higher education administration.

Whether you are a recent college graduate, working higher ed professional or degreed individual seeking a career transition, Baldwin Wallace’s Leadership in Higher Education (LHE) program is engaging, real-world focused and comprehensive.

BW’s LHE program uniquely integrates both academic affairs and student life. You'll complete two substantially different one-year internships covering both academic affairs and student life – a key advantage for career exploration and employment.

Flexible, Integrated Higher Education Administration Degree

  • Full-time students complete two distinct internships on BW’s campus or at a nearby college during this two-year program.
  • Part-time students already working in professional roles at higher education institutions complete internships on their own campuses.
  • Coursework includes synergetic combination of theory with practical application on topics like student development, campus diversity, college outcomes, ethical decision-making, funding and finance, staff development and marketing.
  • Cohort-style program and strong faculty-student mentoring foster personal, academic and career support.
