Educational Technology Concentration

Why earn an M.S. in Instructional Technology?

The master’s degree program in instructional technology is an applied professional program that helps to educate leaders in educational computing and media. Educational Technology is intended for students who wish to integrate technology into classroom teaching or to coordinate and plan the integration of educational technologies at the school, district or state level.

Each student in the program produces a culminating project to demonstrate professional competencies in instructional technology. These culminating projects may be in the form of action research, a curriculum or unit design, an electronic portfolio or a professional-level internship.


Many courses offer at least one online project or activity, and some courses meet only once or twice on campus while all other activities take place online. Classes usually start after 4 p.m. to accommodate working professionals. The program is also offered off-campus.
