Summer Internships Provide EDAD Students With Hands-on Experience

Graduate students in the Master of Arts (M.A.) in educational administration program with a specialization in student affairs administration (often called the "Student Affairs program" for short), are required to enroll in the EDAD 998: Student Affairs Internship course as part of the course sequence. This course provides students with hands-on experience that may or may not be similar to the work that they complete in their graduate assistantships. Some students complete internships close to Lincoln while others travel to different parts of the country.

Funnah learns about studying through a unique course

When second-year graduate student Jamil Funnah was considering what to do this summer the idea of studying abroad was on his mind. Funnah was unable to make study abroad work with his schedule during his undergraduate career so he was hoping to complete an experience before he wrapped up his master's degree. After some research, Funnah discovered a course offered by Kent State University titled Planning and Implementing Study Abroad While Studying Abroad.

Dr. Brent Cejda retires from EDAD

1. When did you come to UNL and what did you teach/specialize in?

We moved to Lincoln in the summer of 2005. Initially I taught broad courses related to higher education administration such as Issues in Higher Education Administration. Then I was asked to switch to classes developed for the community college leadership certificate such as Teaching and Learning in the Community College. After I served as chair, I taught courses for our master’s degree programs—mainly Higher Education in America. I guess you would say that I was a generalist rather than a specialist.
