MAET students can earn their master’s degrees entirely online. We offer 16 online courses with a 15:1 student to instructor ratio. These fully accessible courses are primarily asynchronous, with opportunities for brief, interactive connections.
The Master of Arts in Educational Technology (MAET) develops innovative educational leaders who are prepared to transform teaching and learning in their professional settings. Through our program, educators and designers develop a critical lens, promote equity, think in new ways and become transformational leaders.
Our graduates are thought leaders who have deep theoretical understandings of how, when and why to integrate technologies to support learning.
The MAET is a 30-credit master’s program (Plan B, without thesis) that can be completed through our flexible program pathways: online, summer hybrid and/or summer overseas. We also offer graduate certificate programs in a variety of modalities that allow educators to gain advanced knowledge and skills in just one or two semesters.
