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 PhD students as research assistants, and, since 2017, the Center has also been responsible for delivering a M.A degree in International Higher Education. The Center also manages a Professional Certificate in International Higher Education.
