The Center for International Higher Education is involved in the training of graduate students as an integral part of Boston College.

In particular, the Center regularly hosts students from the Ph.D. program as research assistants, and, since 2017, the Center has also been responsible for delivering a M.A degree in International Higher Education (including a dual degree version with the Universidad de Gualajara in Mexico). The Center also manages a Professional Certificate in International Higher Education.

In addition, the Center actively contributes to the department’s Executive Doctorate in Higher Education and administers the “International Perspectives” track through the MA program in Higher Education.
