What the Degree is About

The MEd program is specifically designed for classroom teachers, educators, and administrators who want to increase their understanding of the role of technology and its appropriate implementation in the teaching and learning process. This program helps students evaluate, integrate and implement instructional design and various forms of technology into their current teaching or administrative assignments. Students may choose to focus in educational technology, school library media administration (SLMA), or e-learning.

MEd with an emphasis in School Library Media Administration (SLMA)

The School Library Media Administration (SLMA) program at Utah State University (USU) is designed for those interested in working in a school library media center, public or private. The program includes all the coursework and practicum experience necessary for the Utah State Office of Education (USOE) library media K-12 endorsement. Those seeking the state endorsement must currently have, or be working toward, a valid Utah teaching license. Students may choose to take these courses and not apply for the state endorsement.

Degree Requirements

All MEd students are admitted in a cohort to begin fall semester each year. The program requires a minimum of 36 credits, which is typically completed in six semesters or less, but studentshave up to six years to complete the degree requirements.
Prior to beginning classes, all MEd students are required to attend a three day orientation in August on the Logan campus. [See dates above] After the face-to-face orientation, the program is designed to be taken at a distance. It is predominantly online, with broadcast courses for the SLMA emphasis.

The MEd program is a 36 semester hour program of course work with a culminating experience: a creative project, a practicum, or an internship.
