Specialist in Education (EdS) in Teacher Education

Educational Technology Concentration

This fully online EdS program requires 30 hours of graduate-level coursework beyond the master’s degree, including six hours in core courses, 18 hours in specialized courses, and six hours to be determined by the student’s committee. Both thesis and non-thesis options are available.

A master’s degree and three years of professional experience is required for admission. The total EdS program involves a minimum of four semesters of study with no fewer than 60 semester hours of graduate credit beyond baccalaureate, including research/thesis hours.

Education courses at the 400-level required for licensure are not eligible. At least two-thirds of semester hours accumulated in master’s and all of the last 30 semester hours accumulated must be in 500 or 600 level courses. The EdS thesis must be approved by the student’s committee prior to submission to the Graduate School for final approval and acceptance. The student must register for thesis hours during this time.
