About the Instructional Technology Master’s and Doctoral Programs

The instructional technology program offers both master’s and doctoral degrees. The goal of the program is to prepare specialists in the field of instructional design and technology. Instructional technology students come from a variety of backgrounds, including public school education, higher education, and the private sector. Graduate programs include a foundation of educational research and educational psychology as well as an in-depth study of instructional design and educational technology applications. Several online courses are offered and an online master’s degree is available.

The doctoral program requires 93 credit hours (including a dissertation) beyond a bachelor’s degree. Doctoral program graduates often enter the field of higher education as professors, instructional designers, and technology specialists.

Two areas of emphasis are available: educational computing and distance education. The master’s program with an emphasis in educational computing requires 39 credit hours, and the emphasis in distance education requires 36 hours. Graduates often accept positions as technology specialists in public education, consultants or developers of instructional materials in the private sector, or community college instructors or technology specialists.
