About the Technology Education Program


The Department offers two programs of study, a Master of Arts  Degree program and a Doctoral degree program.

The masterís degree curriculum enables students to select an emphasis of study based on their individual interests, goals, and objectives within the cohesive theme of the study of technology. The program culminates in a master of arts degree in technology education.

The Doctoral degree curriculum is oriented toward the development of professional competencies rather than specific course requirements. Generally, the competencies include the ability to interpret and to initiate scholarly research in the discipline of technology, a knowledge of significant technical developments in at least one area of concentration, an understanding of the historical development, cultural impact, and future implications of technology, the ability to develop effective instructional programs in the technologies, and the ability to integrate information from various sources in solving socio-technical problems.
