Instructional Technology (M.S.) - Instructional Design and Development
Why earn an M.S. in Instructional Technology?
The master's degree program in instructional technology is an applied professional program that helps to educate leaders. The program is open to professionals who are seeking to improve their skills and knowledge in technology integration. Students in Instructional Design and Development develop competencies in instructional design and related media. The track is ideal for students who wish to design training or instruction in business, industry, government or the military.
Each student in the program produces a culminating project to demonstrate professional competencies in instructional technology. These culminating projects may be in the form of action research, a curriculum or unit design, an electronic portfolio or a professional-level internship.
Many courses offer at least one online project or activity, and some courses meet only once or twice on campus while all other activities take place online. Classes usually start after 4 p.m. to accommodate working professionals. Our affiliation with the Towson Learning Network means students may take classes off campus, including locations on Maryland's Eastern Shore, at the HEAT Center in Aberdeen, MD., or at convenient county schools.
