The College Student Services Administration (CSSA) program at Oregon State University comprises a community of scholars and practitioners who strive to advance the field of student affairs through the preparation and continuing education of professional colleagues at the Master’s level. The program’s primary mission is to prepare individuals for professional administrative positions in student services departments at two- and four-year colleges and universities. The curriculum emphasizes administrative leadership and management of programs and services. The CSSA program is a master’s program academically housed in OSU’s new School of Education and professionally housed within Student Affairs.
Graduation from the program requires the following:
- Successful completion of at least 54 credits of graduate-level coursework, the majority of which are required in the major field of study (CSSA). Additionally, a minor or area of specialization is chosen and completed by the individual student; and
- Successful completion and presentation of a capstone portfolio (Ed.M. degree) or a thesis capstone (M.S. degree) during the final year.
