The Master’s degree (M.S.) in TET prepares educators to be successful in integrating available and emerging technologies into their teaching. This program focuses on an instructional systems approach and the principles of learning design. By capitalizing on their content expertise, students will further develop their skills to apply technological tools to the learning process. Students with this degree will be able to develop and implement best practices in the use of technology to enhance both teaching and learning.
The M.S. degree is a 36-hour program beyond the Bachelor’s degree. The TET core consists of 27 hours of required courses, including an experience in either a practicum or internship setting.
