Educational Technology Specialist, Five-Year Combined Degree

The combined degree program is a popular choice among our students because it offers each student the chance to earn both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree, and a minimum of two teaching certificates in just five years.

Students considering the degree have until the first semester of their senior year to make that decision. Candidates must be in good academic standing and have completed the prerequisite number of undergraduate credits in order to be eligible for the program.

The Master’s of Science in Education (MSEd) in Educational Technology is designed as an extension to undergraduate students working toward certification in childhood or adolescent education.

The program prepares teachers to enhance their knowledge of disabilities to be more effective in their classroom and also to be specialists in their schools. The combined degree program is a 33 credit-hour program that leads to a certificate in Educational Technology Specialist and initial certification in childhood or adolescent education.
