It adds meaning and purpose to the work I'm pursuing and allows me to see the bigger picture. Joining a program that would afford me the opportunity to merge theory and practice was essential to my decision to attend USF.” - Amiya Powell-Hodge, Higher Education & Student Affairs Alumna The HESA Program at USF seeks individuals who demonstrate an explicit commitment to social justice in higher education and student affairs. As such, we undergo a holistic admissions process in our approach to reviewing applicants, which includes consideration of prior academic and life experiences.

Take action to promote education The aim of this master program is to train future teachers, researchers and entrepreneurs, to provide an understanding of the digital transformations happening in education and to help them design relevant and challenging projects. Education is now globalized: teaching supports of all kinds are available at all time and everywhere. If it is stimulated by digital economy, education must also compete with it. Schools are urged by society to encourage students’ creativity and eagerness to learn, to inspire them to undertake and share, to develop their lucidity, critical thinking and sense of solidarity. But this goals can’t easily be reached, in a context of social crises, growing inequalities and demographic needs. It is a challenge we are ready to take-up: education is in need for new entrepreneurs, teachers and researchers, and ideally, people with these three characteristics all at once. We are looking for talented students with a particular interest for exploration, experimentation and research. Our candidates must have the desire to work together on exciting collaborative projects and to contribute now to tomorrow’s education. Foster digital people The EdTech program is part of the AIRE master of the universities Paris Descartes and Paris Diderot. It develops an innovative approach of education and a teaching through research pedagogy.
