Master of Education: Technology Education - Credits: 30 (program code:  0915)

Certificate: STEM Secondary Education - Credits: 9 (program code: 0917)

Program Description

The Technology Education program offers a master's of education in technology education and a certificate in STEM for Secondary Education. Students are encouraged to apply for admission to both programs at the same time since the courses required for the certificate are also required for the master's degree. Upon completion, students would earn both the master's degree and the certificate.

The mission of the master's degree is to provide professional development to teachers and other educators in the field of technology education, providing a broad-based understanding of the field and its direction. The certificate provides educators with a fundamental understanding of STEM subject matter in secondary schools.

Technology education is a vital aspect of education and promotes the development of technologically literate citizens by studying the broad spectrum of technology. In contrast, educational technology focuses on using computer technology to enhance instruction. The degree and certificate are not intended for individuals interested in educational or instructional technology.

It is important to note that this program does not lead to certification. Students interested in Pennsylvania certification in technology education should contact global online at calugo@calu.edu.
