The master of science degree (M.S.) in educational psychology is offered with an emphasis in information technology in education. This emphasis (40-42 credits) provides graduate level training for educators and prospective educators. The use of information technology in teaching and learning is the focus of this emphasis.

While a portion of the course work focuses on skill development, emphasis is on examining conceptual frameworks relating to the use of information technology in education. It is assumed that the typical student will have a background in education with an interest in exploring educational uses of information technology in the classroom. However, this is not a prerequisite for admission into the information technology in education emphasis.
