To be admitted to the M.A. in Education: Option in Educational Technology andLeadership or Option in New Media Design and Production, you first must be admitted to California State University, Los Angeles as a graduate student.

After you are admitted to the University, you may apply to be admitted to the Instructional Technology M.A. program by (1) completing the Charter College of Education Application forms, (2) attaching official transcripts, and (3) attaching two letters of recommendation from university faculty or professional references.

You may begin taking courses in the program--especially the prerequisite--before being formally admitted. However, no more than 13 units completed prior to the submission of program admission forms may be counted toward the M.A. degree, nor may you transfer more than 13 units into the program from another university. It is strongly advised that you complete the admission procedures as soon as you decide to enter the program. Under any circumstances, you must see your advisor before beginning to take courses in the program to assure that the courses you take will count toward the M.A. degree.
