International Higher Education
Master of Education (MEd): Loyola's Master of Education in International Higher Education is a collaboration between Loyola's Higher Education and Cultural & Educational Policy Studies/Comparative International Education programs. This degree will provide 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. This 36 credit hour program includes a mandatory internship field experience and will conclude with a capstone portfolio.
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.
