Overview

The Student Affairs Administration program at Binghamton University is ideally suited for those who wish to pursue positions including academic advising, admissions and enrollment management, career development and placement, financial aid, health services, judicial affairs, leadership development, multicultural affairs, non-traditional and commuter student services, residential life, services for students with disabilities, student activities, and student development and involvement.

The Master of Science in Student Affairs Administration degree program is suited for those who wish to pursue careers in higher education. The program is grounded in both student development theory and the concept of theory-to-practice-to-theory. Thus, an underlying goal of the program is to prepare professionals who have working knowledge of how student development theory is used in practice and how practice serves to inform future theory development.

The program seeks prepare administrative leaders and personnel who are comfortable working with people of diverse backgrounds in positions that require decision-makers to respond to department/unit situations while taking into consideration how their decisions impact other systems (such as departments and/or divisions) within the institution.

The program was designed to meet the American College Personnel Association (ACPA) Professional Preparation Commission Standards and is offered through full-time and part-time tracks.
