M.S. in Educational Technology (Blended Format)
The next two-to-three decades are poised to be the most exciting and change-filled times in the history of education. Just as technology has forever altered non-school communications in the past two decades, it is now in position to, and will, alter education, the largest communications business we know, in similar ways. Education will very be different, and it must be because we have the constantly expanding Internet and an evolving virtual world of learning.
The program itself is different; it is taught in a blend of online and in-person delivery methods. It represents and uses many of the changes that are beginning to occur and will continue throughout your career.
The 30-credit M.S. in Educational Technology program is taught in local school districts on Long Island and via online coursework. Classes meet in school settings such as Herricks Union Free School District in New Hyde Park, N.Y., the Half Hollow Hills School District in Dix Hills, N.Y., and Southampton School District, Southampton, N.Y. Completion of this program satisfies New York State requirements for professional certification. The M.S. in Educational Technology provides an opportunity to qualify for New York State Certification *(Educational Technology Specialist) that can enhance your career options.

One or two people in each cohort often join us in this category. The State has approved the program in two ways - "for certification" and "non-certification." Speak with Dr. Schneiderman at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in the "non-certification" option.
