Graduate offerings are available throughout the year, with special opportunities in the summer session. Detailed descriptions of programs of study for various fields of specialization may be secured from the Office of Graduate Studies within the College of Education or from faculty members who are responsible for academic advising. Each program of study, particularly for the Ph.D. degree, is designed by the student in collaboration with appropriate faculty members to meet the student's needs and objectives.

*International applicants are advised that completion of the on-campus Master of Science in Education degree, with a concentration in Learning Design and Technology (LDT), will take longer than two years to complete. Some required courses in the LDT master’s program are offered only in an online format. Full-time international graduate students must register for at least five credits of on-campus coursework each semester to meet visa requirements. This may impact international students’ progress in the on-campus LDT master’s program.
