Comprehensive Programs, Designed to Prepare Higher Education Leaders for the Challenges of Tomorrow.

Graduate professional education is concerned with enhancing a broad spectrum of talents in students. Some of these talents are addressed by structured, in-class activities determined primarily by faculty, while others are addressed by out-of-class activities that often are student-directed. Both types of learning opportunities are incorporated into each student's Plan of Study.

The Higher Education program at Virginia Tech is built upon collegial relationships between faculty and students throughout the period of graduate study with a special emphasis on social justice and equity. Faculty serve as teachers, advisors, colleagues, and mentors to students. For full consideration all application materials must be received by January 15th of each year. The program does not participate in rolling admissions.

Highlights of the Program:

  • Professional and scholarly development in higher education policy and leadership
  • Extensive professor and student interaction
  • Opportunities for student scholarship and research
  • Funding availability for both master's and doctoral students
  • Part-time enrollment for working professionals
The Higher Education program affirms the Virginia Tech Principles of Community and strives to incorporate these principles into our programming. Furthermore, the program is committed to increasing diversity on campus through recruitment and retention of qualified faculty, staff and students and it supports policies, programs and practices needed to maintain this effort.
