|DESCRIPTION:||The Master of Education in Instructional Technology consists of three concentrations: Computer/Technology, Instructional Technology/General and Library/Media. A degree can be obtained in any of the three concentrations, or the endorsement/licensure can be obtained without the degree for fewer credit hours
Computer/Technology is a licensure endorsement program intended for teachers who plan to teach computer applications in the classroom or who want to assume technology coordinator positions in a school or at the district level. This endorsement can only be added to an existing teaching license and cannot be obtained independently as a separate licensure.
ITEC General degree program is designed to prepare students to use a variety of technologies in classrooms, both in schools, in training facilities, or in a variety of other capacities associated with instruction.
Library/Media prepares students for positions in school media centers and libraries. This licensure can only be added to an existing teaching license and cannot be obtained independently as a separate licensure. It also requires the passing of the state Praxis examination in Library/Media.
|Official transcript(s), goal statement and two letters of recommendation. Admission into the Library–Media concentration also requires both GRE and good moral character verification if initial licensure.
|The Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree requires a minimum of 32 semester hours of graduate coursework including at least 16 semester hours at the 60000 level or above. A major consisting of 18 or more semester hours in the College of Education, Health, and Human Services is required. M.Ed. students have six years from the term of first enrollment to complete the degree.
|A thesis project can be chosen as part of the Masters Degree Program, in lieu of taking two courses (6 credit hours). Students select a committee comprised of two faculty members to supervise their work on this project.
|ACCREDITATION:||The Computing/Technology endorsement program has been fully accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
