The Master of Science in College Student Affairs (CSA) is designed to
prepare students for the expanded roles of student affairs professionals in
today’s diverse educational environments. Students will experience the
practical application of student affairs administration and utilize conflict
analysis and resolution skills in higher education.
The program is designed for students interested in a student affairs master’s
degree program and for those currently working in student affairs. It is offered
in an evening format on campus and in an online format. Full-time students
