Program overview

The MA in Educational Technology prepares you for careers in training, education, and related work, including work as an instructional designer (who plans and prepares instructional programs), educational consultant (who works with professional educators to strengthen their teaching and related work), educational technology specialist (who supports others in designing, planning for, and using technology in schools, universities, and similar settings), and as managers and leaders of these efforts. Through the program, you explore how to design and develop instructional materials as well as broader campaigns to improve the performance of individuals and organizations. Preparation in research methods ensures that the designs are evidence-based. Preparation in learning theories ensures that instructional strategies address the realities of human learning and cognition. Courses in using production tools, designing games, consulting, administration, and evaluating educational programs prepare you for specific real-world challenges. And a capstone—an internship for those new to the field, a thesis equivalent for those with experience, and a thesis for those who want to continue on a research path—guides you in applying the skills and launching the next phase of your career. Each capstone option provides you with an opportunity to work with our wide network of corporate, government, and community partners.
