M.Ed. in Educational Technology

The Master’s Degree in Educational Technology is designed to provide advanced professional studies in graduate level coursework to develop capabilities essential to the effective design, evaluation, and delivery of technology-based instruction and training (e.g., software development, multimedia development, assistive technology modifications, web-based development, and distance learning).

The program is intended (1) to prepare educators to assume leadership roles in the integration of educational technology into the school curriculum, and (2) to provide graduate-level instructional opportunities for several populations (e.g., classroom teachers, corporate trainers, educational software developers) that need to acquire both technological competencies and understanding of sound instructional design principles and techniques.

Graduates of the Educational Technology program who already hold South Carolina Teacher Licensure are eligible for add-on endorsement in Online Teaching which permits them to teach in the SC Virtual School Program. Additionally, the Ed.D in Curriculum and Instruction program offers an Educational Technology Concentration which includes four courses from the Educational Technology curriculum.
