Master of Education in Technology Education: Assistantships and Careers
The Technology Education department offers assistantships each year to our online graduate students, depending upon available funding. Graduate assistants do not teach classes, but may supervise open laboratories for undergraduate courses. As a graduate assistant, you may also work on research or special projects for faculty, the department or University.
The online technology education graduate program at Cal U is of value to teachers because teachers, upon receiving teaching certification, are required by most states to receive ongoing professional development credits beyond their bachelor's degrees.
In Pennsylvania for example, teachers need to obtain 24 credits after their bachelor's degrees. In addition, some states are now requiring teachers to receive professional credits. In Pennsylvania, every teacher must receive six credits (or equivalent) of professional development every five years.
