Educational technology lives at the intersection of several different fields: education, cognitive science, computer science and information systems, graphic and interaction design, and media studies. We believe that it’s a dynamic and interesting place to be, in the early part of the 21st century.
The program in educational technology prepares graduates to teach, design, and develop powerful learning experiences enhanced by the latest digital technologies. Courses combine communication theory, curriculum design, human development, media authoring, and core software development and information systems skills. All graduates complete an integrative project which illustrates their technical and conceptual mastery of these diverse areas. Students also gain field experience by working with experts in a PK-12, higher education, or non-school educational technology sites. Graduates in this field work as school technology specialists, teachers, technology trainers, instructional designers, and educational media producers. They typically find work in K-12 school systems, universities, corporate eLearning, educational publishing, and non-profit or government organizations.
Educational Technology Programs
Candidates in the Masters of Arts choose between two tracks. The K-12 track allows New York State certified teachers to receive a second teaching certificate as a New York State Educational Technology Specialist. The non-certification track meets the needs of students looking for careers in educational technology in higher education, corporate or public learning, and educational media/software design and production. In addition to the Masters of Arts, the program offers a five-course advanced graduate certificate in Technology and Open Education.
