Degree Paths

Whether you want to pursue the degree full time or part time, we believe students’ own passions and experiences should guide their learning. Therefore, our courses offer flexibility for students to examine areas of particular interest within each topic. The Master’s Project and internship experience(s) give you the opportunity to deepen your understanding of the issues within higher education that are most important to you.
