WCU’s Master of Arts in Education (M.A.Ed.) Program with a concentration in Community College Administration will prepare you for mid-to-upper-level administrative positions at the community college.
If you’re interested in moving into a leadership position at a community college, this is the program for you—convenient, student-centered, and focused on developing future leaders for the community college.
Entry into the Master of Arts in Education Degree Program in Community College Administration is selective and based upon Graduate School requirements.
Courses are currently offered in a variety of formats, including: face-to-face classes in Cullowhee and Asheville, Interactive Television sites located at community colleges, asynchronous Internet-based courses, and hybrid courses using a combination of formats.
The entire program can be completed without traveling to our campuses in Cullowhee or Asheville. Through the use of an Interactive Television system (ITV), WCU has delivered the program to a number of community colleges throughout western and central North Carolina. Many ITV courses follow a convenient weekend-intensive format, which benefits working adults. These courses meet over the ITV system approximately one weekend per month (five weekends each semester). This includes Friday night and Saturday morning classes.
Financial aid is available in the form of grants, scholarships, work-study and loans. The Western Carolina University Financial Aid Office is here to assist you with the process of applying for financial aid.
