Graduate Programs

The PhD program in Communications Media and Instructional Technology (CMIT) and the Master of Arts degree in Adult Education and Communications Technology (AECT) are unique programs rarely found at other universities. The CMIT PhD is one of only a few in the country to include production courses-in addition to theory and research. The AECT MA is offered jointly with the Department of Adult and Community Education and offers an option to complete the Instructional Technology Specialist Certification. The flexibility of these programs is popular with working professionals.
