The Master of Arts in Educational Technology is designed for individuals seeking to become technology leaders and trainers in corporations, K-12 education, higher education, nonprofits and other organizations. The degree will prepare you for leadership roles in the support and training of others in learning organizations.
As both a totally online degree program and campus based program, the Master of Arts in Educational Technology allows students the flexibility to participate in and complete most or all of your coursework without having to commute to campus or to take most of the courses of your degree program on campus. While many students are able to complete their EDT Graduate studies online without ever stepping on campus, others prefer or are required by funding sources and government requirement to take their EDT Masters degree course work in our state of the art instructional classrooms and computer labs on campus. Students should be prepared to handle distance education instruction that often requires more independent work, self-direction, and the meeting of course deadlines outside of regular classroom meetings. Students will also need to have mastered basic computer communications systems, including e-mail, web browsing, and submission of assignments via file transfer procedures. An online application and additional information can be found at www.wmich.edu/leadership/academics/edtech/master/admissions.
In addition to meeting the requirements of the Graduate College, all applicants must possess a baccalaureate degree, provide a statement outlining technology skills and background, career goals, and educational philosophy (1,000 words). Admission decisions will be made by program faculty after review of admission materials.
