About the Program

Our online Master of Education with a concentration in Educational Technology fosters engagement with research, theory, design, technologies, and practice in the discipline. Successful graduates are prepared to advance in the workplace, make career changes, or pursue doctoral work in the field. 

We’ve designed our M.Ed. in Education with a concentration in Educational Technology for people with a bachelor’s degree from any background. Some enrollees are teachers who want a master’s in education, but also want more options in the school system or the corporate world, specifically in instructional design and technology. Others are from colleges and universities, non-profits, or the corporate training industry. The one trait they share is an interest in the fast-growing field of educational and instructional technology.
