MEd in International Higher Education


The MEd program in International Higher Education provides students with deep knowledge of the changing landscape of international higher education and prepares them to work in multiple areas including: higher education policy, administration, international student affairs, and study abroad. Our graduates work at institutions of higher education, adult education, think tanks, research centers, and with study abroad providers. 

Our global cohort format ensures that this opportunity for advanced study and professional preparation is available to students who are not only based in Chicago or in the U.S. but anywhere around the world. We aim to recruit a cohort of students deeply committed to social justice whose diverse backgrounds and previous work experiences-as well as future career objectives-will enrich the learning environment.

Coursework in this program will be entirely online with the exception of two courses abroad: one two-week summer course (at our John Felice Rome Center) and one-week winter course (locations vary year to year and have included our Vietnam Center).
