The Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree is offered as Instructional Technology specialization (program code: SIT) in Curriculum and Instruction. Under the M.Ed. program, students will take 11 courses (six Instructional Technology specialization courses plus three educational foundation courses and two elective courses. A breakdown of these courses is provided below). A minimum of 33 total credit hours are required.

Instructional Technology Specialization Requirements (18 hours)

Educational Foundations (9-10 hours)

M.Ed. Curriculum Sequence

Students should discuss their career goals, as well as their current skills with an advisor before selecting electives. Your advisor is assigned via your last name: Dr. Sang Park (A-G); Dr. Glenn Smith(H-Q); Dr. Yiping Lou (R-Z).

This sequence of courses is very flexible. However, please keep the following in mind:

Students can also complete one or more graduate certificates at the same time they are completing their M.Ed. coursework. Many of the M.Ed. courses simultaneously can count towards one or more graduate certificates, without requiring any additional coursework on the student's part. We recommend that M.Ed. examine each of the graduate certificate options when planning their program of study.
