Counseling and Student Affairs

Program Content

Students who are successful in the M.A.E. program in Student Affairs develop proficiency in all areas of Student Affairs work. Individual students are also provided with opportunities to focus in on specific content areas which may be of particular interest. The actual program content can be divided into three broad areas:

  • Theoretical foundations (historical and evolutionary considerations, theories of student development, theories of organizational development, etc.),
  • Parameters of professional practice (ethical, legal and political issues, diversity and multiculturalism, social and moral responsibilities, etc.), and
  • Strategies for enhancing administrative effectiveness (leadership training, staff recruitment, training, and evaluation, budgeting and planning, program development, implementation, and assessment, etc.).
