M.S. in Instructional Design, Development and Evaluation

The M.S. in Instructional Design, Development and Evaluation prepares students to identify and evaluate learning and performance problems and to design, develop, implement, evaluate, and manage appropriate instructional solutions to these problems. Students develop competencies to conduct instructional analysis, make appropriate design decisions, develop instructional materials, implement and evaluate instructional programs, and assess learning. The curriculum includes courses that blend soft technologies (thinking models and theories, strategic planning, IDD&E processes, interpersonal communications, and software) with hard technologies. Through practical projects, students develop competencies to design, create, implement, and evaluate non-technology and technology-supported instructional solutions for a variety of educational and professional settings. IDD&E prepares professional practitioners through in-depth study, participation in real-world projects, and small group collaboration.

This degree can lead to career opportunities including instructional designer, training development director, multimedia materials designer, e-learning coordinator, project manager, project evaluator and quality assessment specialist.
