B.S. in CIS / CIT and M.S. in Instructional Technology

The program in Instructional Technology enables students majoring in Computer and Information Science or Computer and Information Technology to begin a master’s degree in Instructional Technology before completing their undergraduate studies. Educational institutions and businesses need developers for online courses and designers for online training. This program will prepare students to fill those roles.

Beginning the summer before the student’s Junior year, the student takes at least one graduate course in Instructional Technology most semesters. During the summer following the Senior year, the student will take two graduate courses and complete the remaining required graduate courses and thesis during the fifth year of study. Because of the intense nature of this program, students should discuss any plans for a minor with an academic advisor.
