About the Program

Our online Master of Education with a concentration in Learning Design and 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 program for learners from all undergraduate backgrounds. Some learners in the program are K-12 teachers who want to use technology to support interactive, engaging, and accessible learning for their students. Other learners in the program work in colleges and universities, non-profits, or the corporate training industry and want to better understand the role of technology to advance workplace and professional learning. The one trait they share is an interest in the fast-growing field of learning design and instructional technology.
