If you plan to work in an education environment, either in K-12 schools or higher education, the Master of Education degree is for you.
With the MEd degree, you will:
assist instructors in appropriately, effectively and successfully integrating technology into their instruction
work directly with students in teaching skills associated with the use of technology
learn the theoretical issues associated with technologically supported instruction and apply this knowledge in terms of best practice
An independent study project (research) is required for your capstone experience. The independent study may address a practical problem or address a theoretical construct in the same way that a thesis does.
This makes UND's IDT program unique in North Dakota.
Master of Science (MS)
If you would like to develop and deliver technologically supported curriculum for business, government, or industry, the Master of Science degree is for you. If your background is not based in education, you may also prefer this option.
The MS degree is available in two tracks:
Thesis Option - focuses on developing and utilizing research skills
Independent Study Option - emphasizes the development and evaluation of application and practice
