cinstructional technology systems c t his ms in instructional technology systems program is intended for graduate students who plan to work with instructional technology systems in two possible capacities students in the software design in instructional technology track emerge as accomplished software engineers and programmers they will be prepared for jobs in software design and construction at universities and at coding shops that specialize in educational software students in the systems integration in instructional technology track emerge as accomplished systems planners systems analysts and systems managers they will be prepared for jobs in instructional software systems management or as business/systems analysts at coding shops that specialize in educational software the ms in instructional technology systems will equip the student with the core theories and skills to advance to be the cio or cto of an instruction delivery organization a primary focus of the degree is to develop practitioners at corporate training and development organizations the degree is split into two tracks matching the two capacities listed above this program is guided by several curriculum principles • reflecting the eclectic and developing nature of current internet and instructional technology design this program does not presuppose any dominant technologies or programming languages rather students will be exposed to a broad mix of technologies programming languages and tools • the program is designed to adapt to rapid changes in both technology and industry norms • the program is designed around industry needs and based upon a long-term partnership with instructional technology leaders • the program is designed to provide maximum opportunities for practicum and team projects the program has five phases with each phase preparing the student for the subsequent phase the master’s degree program consists of • prerequisite courses fundamentals courses • • advanced phase courses elective courses • • capstone course grade and gpa requirements grades students must receive a grade of b or better in each prerequisite course and a c or better in all other courses gpa students must maintain a graduate level gpa of 2.50 or higher while pursuing their degree students will not be approved for graduation with less than a 2.50 gpa prerequisite courses the courses in the prerequisite phase for the ms in instructional technology systems both tracks csc 211programming in java i csc 212 programming in java ii or csc 224 java for programmers csc 323 data analysis and statistical software i csc 224 is equivalent to both csc 211 and csc 212 only students with experience in programming languages should take csc 224 51
