What our grads are saying about our program:

This program helped me discover a new career field for myself that is a perfect combination of education, design, and technology. I was able to get a job in the field before I even finished my last semester. Take care everyone and never stop learning! - Jessica Bradt, Spring 2020


There is no program that could have better prepared us for the future of our field with hands-on work and the best professors. - Christian Caceres, Spring 2020

The MA in Education in E-Learning and New Media Design program has prepared me to be able to go into any environment and be able to create instructional material for different learners.  It has shown me different technology tools and when it would be best to use them. I loved that this program allowed me to use my creativity and showed me new ways to do it. What stood out even more about the program is the care and support that was given to my classmates and I along the way.  I was very nervous to start an MA program but the professors made sure to guide us and encourage us throughout the way.  If it wasn’t for the professors and support from my friends and family it would’ve been very hard to graduate during a pandemic. Thank you! - Evelyn Chicas, Spring 2020
