Master of Education in Business (& Marketing) Education
The Business Education masters program is designed to qualify individuals for sound innovative teaching in the classroom, business and industry, as well as creative leadership.
Although the program includes a variety of options such as preparing for initial teacher licensure, careers in post-secondary education, and master teaching in business and marketing, only one option can be taken completely online, that being the “Computer Technology Endorsement Certificate” option.
- The program is focused on skills and content related to 21st century teaching and learning. Business and marketing education graduate students participating in the online "Computer Technology Endorsement Certificate" track will:
Develop advanced knowledge and skills in the area of business and marketing education
Develop knowledge and skills in technology that enhance their students’ learning
Demonstrate leadership skills for local, state or national educational technology initiatives
Candidates may apply for the Computer Technology Endorsement Certificate upon completion of the first 16 credit hours of this masters program. Although business teachers are already licensed to teach a variety of computer technology-related subjects, this endorsement allows them to teach additional courses within the computer technology and computer science field. It also prepares them to be a technology facilitator (coordinator) for their school district.
This computer technology endorsement allows teachers to:
- teach computer science courses from grades K-12 (including non-career technical multimedia literacy, technology communication and problem-solving, electronic resources, technology and ethics, computer graphics, web site development, etc.)
- provide leadership for local, state and even national educational technology initiatives (such as serving as a technology facilitator/coordinator and as a professional development provider)
