The Higher Education Administration graduate program at University of Kansas allows students to extend and apply their knowledge of colleges and universities, and to gain relevant experience in higher education administration. Graduate students will learn from expert scholars and practitioners, as well as fellow classmates, who bring diverse leadership experiences to the higher education administration program at KU.Students admitted to the Master’s degree program are required to obtain a graduate assistantship at KU (or another local higher education institution).

- Assistantships Partnership – KU’s Higher Education Administration program allows students to participate in a campus-wide collaborative program that places graduate students in various assistantships positions.
- Internship Opportunities - As a course elective, students can choose to participate in self-designed for-credit internship experience that complements the learning process.
