Degree Requirements (36 total credit hours)
The Master of Science degree program in instructional technology requires a minimum of 36 credit hours beyond the baccalaureate degree. The program will be comprised of: (1) a required set of core courses of 15 credit hours; (2) 15 credit hours of focus area courses; (3) a minimum of three credit hours of thesis or portfolio; and (4) three credit hours of internship.
The Master of Science degree in applied information technology is specifically designed to allow students, in consultation with their faculty advisors, to tailor a program of study specifically to their own personal or career needs. Each student’s program of study will be carefully designed to meet appropriate educational objectives. The option of taking at least six credit hours of course work outside the instructional technology discipline is consistent with a multidisciplinary view of the field.
