About Instructional Technology
The MEd and EdS degrees are primarily focused toward teachers, staff, and administrators who want to increase their understanding of the role of technology and its appropriate implementation in the teaching and learning process. The program helps students evaluate, integrate, and implement various forms of technology and instructional design skills into their current teaching or administrative assignments.
The MEd is a master’s level degree, while the EdS is beyond the master’s level. It has the equivalent number of credits to a PhD program; the difference is that EdS students do not complete a dissertation.

They can also go on to supervisory positions with school districts and education offices, or work for businesses who specialize in creating curriculum.
Many other possibilities are open to people with ITLS degrees depending on the student’s undergraduate degree. Graduates will gain the technical skills and knowledge to succeed in a wide variety of fields and with companies and organizations across the spectrum.
