Description

The Master of Education in Instructional Technology includes two concentrations: Instructional Technology/General and Computer/Technology. A degree can be obtained in any of the two concentrations, or the endorsement/licensure can be obtained without the degree for fewer credit hours. These programs are available 100 percent online.

The Instructional Technology/General concentration is designed to prepare students to use a variety of technologies in school classrooms, in training facilities or in other instructional settings.

The Computer/Technology concentration is an 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.

The dual degree Master of Education / Master of Library and Information Science for K-12 School Library Media Licensure leads to a multi-age licensure in school library media. This program is offered in cooperation with the College of Communication and Information and prepares students to work in all types of libraries, including school libraries, and confers initial teaching license. The program of study includes professional educational requirements, library sciences and instructional technology courses.

 

Admission Requirements

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.

 

Graduation Requirements

The Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree requires a minimum of 32 semester hours of graduate. 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.

 

Thesis/ Dissertation

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).
