Educational technology offers two degree programs, a master’s degree or an educational specialist degree in Learning Technologies and Design, with two emphasis areas:

  • Technology in schools

We also offer an online educator graduate certificate.

All courses are 100 percent online. All areas emphasize project-based learning where you learn while working on projects useful to you. You pick the professional goal that makes sense to you, and the educational technology faculty will help you transform your goal into your reality.
