Description:The M.A. in Educational Technology appeals to a new breed of educator/trainer. The program provides opportunities for advanced study in the theoretical foundations of educational technology and multimedia and their practical interdisciplinary applications. M.A. students learn to identify educational and performance problems and apply solutions based in psychology, information and communication technologies, management theory, and systems analysis. Their scholarly activities address concerns about learning for all age groups, from childhood to adulthood, in formal and informal contexts. Most graduates find immediate employment, largely in the corporate sector, but increasingly in educational, government, and NGO contexts as the digital age expands into all aspects of daily life.

M.A. students develop a program of study best suited to their individual academic, research, and professional goals. A thesis or thesis-equivalent option appeals to students who want to conduct research or evaluation studies in the field. A non-thesis internship option is offered for students who wish to develop professional skills.
