Management of Technical Education, MEd

The Management of Technical Education degree is a degree built for the specific audience of educators and trainers with Career and Technical Education and training in mind. Students can hone their technical education and administrative skills through courses in career and technical education. These courses include methods of teaching and training, the professions of teaching and training, and human relations. The Management of Technical Education degree, which is a 36-hour degree can be completed through a mixture of face-to-face, online, and hybrid courses. 


The Management of Technical Education program is more standardized than the Interdisciplinary Studies degree, with fewer options for course choices, but flexibility is still available. There are two tracks available for students in this program. Track 1 combines 15 hours of Educational Leadership or Adult Education with 21 hours of Career and Technical Education  or Occupational Education. Track 2 is a distance learning option that includes a 15-hour Management module and a 21-hour Instructional module formed by courses in Career and Technical Education and Occupational Education. Both tracks do not include an exit module. Instead, students must participate in a written and oral comprehensive exam in their last semester. This program admits students with any bachelor's degree who meet the admission criteria, however, it works best for those who are already involved in teaching or training in some capacity.
