MEd in International Higher Education


The MEd program in International Higher Education provides students with deep knowledge of the changing landscape of higher education globally and will prepare them to work in multiple areas including higher education policy, administration, international student affairs and study abroad.

A collaboration between Loyola’s Higher Education and Cultural & Educational Policy Studies/Comparative International Education programs, the global cohort format of this degree program will ensure 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 online with the exception of two blended courses that will require students to travel to Loyola’s campuses in Rome, and Vietnam for a two-week and one-week session respectively. The internship requirement may be completed in the student’s country of residence or at another location arranged by the student.
