Master's in College Student Personnel

Graduate Student CollaborationThe graduate degree program in College Student Personnel (CSP) is nationally respected, full-time, cohort-based program, taking two academic years to complete. Individuals from across the country come to Ohio University to study in the Master's Degree program in College Student Personnel. Fifteen to twenty students enroll each year in this cohort based program. Over the past forty years, our graduates have attained significant leadership positions in colleges, universities, and professional associations.

The Master's Degree curriculum integrates theory and practice, blending courses in student development theory, student affairs administration, counseling, and higher education with hands-on experience in student affairs offices at Ohio University or at neighboring institutions. The program requires the equivalent of two years of full-time study and follows national standards for professional education, while also personalizing study in order to meet individual needs.

Nearly all positions in the CSP program include a graduate assistantship in Student Affairs or other divisions of Ohio University and a few other institutions.
