Customizing the MET Degree

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 50 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.

Other Wilson College Courses Not Part of the MET Degree

“Wilson College’s partnership with Eduspire has produced a Master of Educational Technology degree that is unlike any other: practical and immediately applicable, allowing for choice and customization based on personal and district priorities and current technology, while providing a thorough and sound pedagogical foundation for tech integration. ”
