Ed.M. in College Student Services Administration – Online

Oregon State University’s Master of Education (Ed.M.) in College Student Services Administration (CSSA) program is designed for those who want to create a positive and enriching college experience for students.

The program is ideal for anyone with an undergraduate degree who is starting, advancing or transferring to a career in student services.

You will be equipped with the skills needed to thrive in a variety of postsecondary education settings, including student affairs, student support services, student government and activities, residence life programs, career services and general student advising and academic support.

Rooted in social justice

On a college campus, supporting the diversity of students’ lives is key to student success. Part of the core responsibility of student services professionals is to work with the life condition of the student that comes to them.

To meet those needs, every aspect of the CSSA program is rooted in social justice, setting a framework for you to deliver equitable and accessible student services programs and services, promote student learning, facilitate community development and lead response to emerging campus issues.

Faculty practitioners

All classes are taught by experienced faculty who are highly respected student services professionals. They are passionate about promoting social justice and creating equitable and successful environments.

A rich history, now in a flexible online format

Celebrating 50 years of providing meaningful educational experiences, the program uses real-world scenarios to connect the theory to the practice. All classes emphasize cultivating knowledge and skills that you will demonstrate at the end of the program through a capstone project.

The CSSA Ecampus online program features the same curriculum as the successful on-campus program, with an added level of flexibility for you to maintain your life’s commitments while advancing toward your career aspirations.

“The CSSA program prepared me to serve diverse students in the field of higher education. Through research and practical application, I am better equipped to facilitate transformational learning experiences for students in our global society.”  -Ali Duerfeldt, pictured above
