The Learning Technologies and Design Master’s and Educational Specialist programs have been fully online since 2003. We prepare students for a variety of professional positions in the fields of education, instructional design, digital media and web design, training, and more.
All areas emphasize project-based learning where you learn while working on projects relevant to your interests. You pick the professional goal that makes sense to you, and our faculty will help you transform your goal into your reality.
Also, check out our Graduate Certificate programs in User Experience and Usability, Online Educator* and Serious Games and Simulation Design. Credits from these certificates can be applied to any of our MS or EdSp programs.
* The Online Educator Certificate program is endorsed by the Association for Educational Communications and Technology, a leading international organization in the field of instructional design and technology.
