Graduate Program in Higher Education: Graduate Assistantships
The Graduate Program in Higher Education at Messiah University offers a select number of graduate assistantships for full-time degree seeking students pursuing the Master of Arts in Higher Education or the Master of Arts in Intercollegiate Athletic Leadership. Graduate assistantships offer students the opportunity to put the theories, gained through classroom instruction, into practice through supervised, real-world experience. Assistantships are designed to provide a meaningful educational and professional experience that will provide graduates with the skills and knowledge they need for successful professional employment. Graduate assistantships are generally two-year appointments.
