Graduate Studies in Technology and Innovation
Degree earned: M. Ed. in Technology & Innovation
The new Master of Education in Technology & Innovation degree program provides you with the opportunity to customize a graduate program of study to fit your life situations and professional development needs. The program is built around the Technology and Innovation Core courses of EDTE 603: Fostering Creativity by Design, EDTE 604: Engineering Principles & Concepts for the Non-Engineer, and EDTE 605: Applying Critical Thinking & Decision Making. These courses have been developed to engage students with such universal and enduring concepts as creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, decision making, design thinking, and innovation. The overall program is structured to be flexible enough to accommodate the needs of today’s graduate students like yourself. This flexibility can be found in the range of elective courses that can be taken to meet your needs, to the three options for degree completion from which you can select, to the times of the day courses are offered, and to the use of technology to enhance the delivery of the courses to locations in the greater Eastern Pennsylvania and mid-Atlantic region. Our new program is appropriate for educators and non-educators alike. The goal of our program is to accentuate and compliment your undergraduate degree by providing new ways of thinking about the world and the problems we must all deal with on a daily basis. That is why students with a range of backgrounds in education from all content areas and across all grade levels, as well as entrepreneurs, technologists, scientists, and people from business and industry will all benefit from earning a degree in Technology and Innovation.
If you want to become a part of this cutting edge program you should contact Dr. Scott Warner. He is the coordinator for the graduate degree program for the Master of Education in Technology and Innovation. If you have any questions, please email Dr. Warner at Scott.Warner@millersville.edu.
Applicants must possess a baccalaureate degree. Individuals who hold a bachelor’s degree in another field and seek admission may also wish to satisfy Technology & Engineering Education teacher certification requirements. Selected graduate courses may be credited toward both certification and the master’s degree in Technology and Innovation. Consult with the AEST Department Chairperson or the AEST Graduate Coordinator for further information.
Admission to the M.Ed. in Technology and Innovation program is granted after a favorable review of application materials. A minimum undergraduate cumulative average of 3.0 is required. Applicants with less than a 3.0 GPA are required to submit test scores from the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Probationary admission may be granted at the discretion of the department.
