FAQs

Eligibility

Is a Bachelor’s Degree in Education needed to enter the Master’s program?

No, but some experience in teaching or training is useful. What is important is the applicant's understanding of and commitment to the field of educational technology.

What undergraduate degree is needed or preferred by the Master’s program?

A bachelor's degree in any field is acceptable, as long as it has been earned at an accredited institution; the GPA (Grade Point Average) of 3.0 on a 4-point scale is necessary to consider the applicant for regular status admission. Majors in Journalism, History, Political Science, Computer Science, and Nursing, among others, have successfully graduated from the program.

Coursework

How long does it typically take for a student to complete the the Dual Master’s MEd LTEC and MLISc program?

The minimum time is three academic years of full-time study, which would mean 3-4 courses in each fall and spring semester in three years. Typically, these days most students are working adults who find it difficult to maintain a full-time course schedule. Most students complete the program in four years but some take longer depending on the number of courses taken per semester. Remember that in addition to class time, graduate courses require a significant commitment to reading and other coursework beyond the hours in the classroom.

Application

What should a Statement of Objectives include?

The LTEC department does not require applicants to include a particular element in their Statement of Objectives however we do provide applicants with a Statement of Objectives guide to steer them in the right direction.

Do I need to apply for both the MEd LTEC and MLISc program or just one of them?

Applicants interested in pursuing a dual degree must submit separate applications to each program; entry requirements for both graduate programs must be met and both programs must be started in the same semester. Consider, also, that some programs accept new students in both fall and spring semesters, while other programs may only accept new students in the fall semester.
