Educational Media & Technology

Please Note: This program is on a moratorium for the spring 2013 semester and 2013-14 academic year. We are not accepting new students into the program at this time.

The program in Educational Media & Technology prepares graduates for a variety of professional careers through a carefully blended curriculum of core courses, electives, and field experiences.

Graduates go on to professional careers as teachers, professors, and researchers; instructional designers in higher education, publishing, health related fields, and business; independent designers and developers of educational software; pre-K–12 technology directors and instructional technologists; and managers of the human and technology-based resources necessary to support education and training with technology.

Boston University, the rich resources of the Boston area, and our extensive alumni network allow us to offer many attractive opportunities for students to gain experience through practica, internships, and independent study.

The CAGS program is designed for students who have already earned a master’s degree and who wish to pursue coursework in educational media and technology.  You may enroll in this program without previous coursework in the area.  The program is comprehensive and allows for specialization.  Students take coursework in educational media and technology, research, curriculum and teaching, and specialization courses.  Coursework is selected in conjunction with your advisor.  Previous coursework in the field may substitute for required courses and create more options for electives.
