Our students meet the competencies specified by both the Interna-tional Society of Technology Education (ISTE) and the State of New York. The MSEd also satisfies the educational requirement for New York State Certification as an educational technology specialist (grades K-12). Prerequisites Teachers or information technology professionals with a bachelor's degree or higher from an accredited institution may apply. We seek a minimum GPA of 3.0; however, some candidates with a GPA of less than 3.0 may be admitted on a conditional basis. Your transcript will be reviewed to ensure it covers the arts and sciences content knowledge required for certification. Any deficiencies can be met during the course of the program, but will not count toward the MSEd degree. Curriculum The Educational Technology Specialist program requires a minimum of 36 graduate credits for the master's degree and 24 graduate credits for the Advanced Certificate, each to be completed within five years. Candidates' background in education and in technology will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, using transcript review and challenge examinations.
