Instructional Technology and Learning Sciences (ITLS) at USU is one of the leading ITLS programs in the nation. We offer high-quality master and doctoral degrees.



The Instructional Technology and Learning Sciences Department began in 1966 as the Department of Instructional Media and Library Science. Faculty were gradually added on a full- and part-time basis, and they were shared with other programs in the College of Education. In the late 1960s to early 1970s, the program focused on the preparation of public school library/media specialists. Starting in the mid-1970s and continuing to the present, the emphasis was broadened to include applications in business, industry, academia, and government.
