Master of Educational Technology Program

Eduspire and Wilson College are excited to announce a new Wilson College Master of Educational Technology (MET) degree program.

Program Features

30 CreditsThe MET program, developed in collaboration by Wilson College and Eduspire, is a uniquely designed master's program, consisting of ten 3-credit courses — eight Wilson College courses in conjunction with Eduspire and two capstone courses. Enrollment into the MET program occurs on a continuous basis and enrolled participants can complete the MET within a timeframe adapted to their personal and professional capacity.  

100% Online (if desired): The MET degree is available as a 100% online program, although face-to-face courses are also eligible to be taken as part of the MET program.

Customizable: Enrolled master's participants are able to tailor their master's curriculum by choosing eight courses from the wide selection of MET-eligible educational technology courses, within a defined structure that provides instruction in key educational technology subject areas (specific structure and requirements detailed below). This framework makes the Wilson College Master of Educational Technology program one of the most flexible programs in the nation, allowing enrolled participants to customize the program based on personal and/or school district priorities. Each MET enrollee will work with an advisor who will provide guidance and advice regarding course selection.

Current and Practical: Eduspire has developed a reputation for courses that are uniquely practical, taught by ed-tech leaders who are generally practicing educators and whose instruction is therefore guided by real-world experience and expertise. Our instructors, who are at the same time Wilson College adjunct faculty, design courses based on current technology and tools, with a focus on providing proven pedagogical frameworks and practices that can be implemented immediately into the classroom. The Wilson College MET program offers cutting-edge, practical content with sound theory embedded throughout the program.

Transferring In Credits: MET enrollees are able to transfer in up to two courses that have been taken previously through any accredited university in conjunction with Eduspire (requires review and approval of specific courses), providing a "head start" when beginning the MET program. Additionally, courses that were taken through Wilson College in the fall of 2016 and are now part of the MET program can be transferred in, as long as they can meet the requirements of the program.

Registration and Tuition: The current tuition for each 3-credit course is $1,530 ($510 per credit). There are no additional fees for courses. Registration for each course is through Eduspire's website, and payment for the course will be made to Wilson College. Deferred tuition payment options are available through Wilson College. Wilson College will provide Pennsylvania Act 48 reporting for completed courses. Application for the MET program is through Wilson College.

Note that the Wilson College Master of Education technology program does not currently include an Instructional Technology Specialist (ITS) certificate, but Wilson College is looking to add an ITS certificate, pending PDE approval. If you are interested in receiving an ITS certificate in addition the MET degree, there will be very limited flexibility in choices of courses to take, and you should wait until the ITS certificate program has been established and the specific courses have been defined before beginning to take courses towards the MET degree. If you are interested in the ITS certificate to go along with the MET, please let us know so we can update you on the status of the ITS certificate as it becomes finalized and approved.

MET Degree Program Structure

The MET program consists of various areas of focus. Within each area, MET enrollees choose the courses that are most appropriate based on their personal and/or district priorities. There are four main focus areas with a total of six required courses, one "elective" category of two courses that can be drawn from any of the more than 40 courses eligible for the Wilson College MET, and two more "capstone" courses.

All courses, including the electives, must be approved by the advisor or director. Note that not all courses are offered every semester, and some may not be offered in an online format or may be discontinued in the future.
