The Center for the Study of Higher Education helps support the provision of online education through the World Campus offerings of the Higher Education (HI ED) program. The CSHE director works alongside the HI ED coordinator of online programs to institute effective and innovative approaches to online education. This collaboration
- enhances the success of the HI ED World Campus degree programs.
- develops knowledge and practices that could be used to enhance the success of other World Campus degree programs or online programs at other higher education institutions.
- creates a mutually-beneficial relationship with CSHE research projects.
The HI ED program offers both a 30-credit M.Ed. in Higher Education and a 15-credit certificate in institutional research through Penn State’s World Campus. The M.Ed. degree was recently rated the #1 online Master’s program in Higher Education.
