MEd-Educational Technology/Library Science   (MED-ETLS)
MS-Educational Technology/Library Science   (MS-ETLS)

The Master of Science and Master of Education degrees are offered in Educational Technology. The degrees are in Educational Technology-Leadership, and in Educational Technology-Library Science. Coursework is also available in two certification areas to prepare educators for teaching Technology Applications and for becoming School Librarians. Certification for school librarians (in public and private elementary and secondary schools) is available in two formats-students who already have a Master's take only the certification courses, but students without a master's may take the certification courses as part of the Educational Technology-Library Science Master's degree. Technology Applications certification courses may be applied to a Master's program, if so desired.
The courses for this program are available only online (no face-to-face courses).  This program is not available to international students. 

A minimum undergraduate overall GPA of 2.75, last 60 hours of bachelor's degree GPA of 3.00 or a conferred US master's degree with an overall GPA of 3.00 is required for admission consideration.
