Consistent with the School of Education's commitment to serve working adults, the program follows a schedule of alternate weekend classes that convene nine times a semester. Classes are typically held Thursday evenings, Friday evenings and all day Saturday.
Students completing the MA in Higher Education and Student Affairs (HESA) participate in multiple practicum opportunities during their program. Practicum options are available in partnership with various departments at USF and other partnering institutions.
Students working full-time in the student affairs field can choose to enroll in an advisor-approved elective course in lieu of completing the practicum.
Each student has the opportunity to do an internship placement at USF or other Bay Area institutions.
