International Education Program with Concentration in Educational Technology (M.Ed.)

  • Program Overview

    Explore techniques for bringing technology into the classroom through this blended online and face-to-face program, with summer courses in Switzerland.

    The Van Loan School at Endicott College offers an M.Ed. in International Education with a concentration in educational technology, which is designed to raise the competencies of educators in all fields by incorporating technology into schools and classroom settings. Curriculum covers the use of computer-mediated communications, management, and instructional technologies of educators and support personnel - with the ultimate goal of helping students achieve their highest potential and to prepare for a rapidly changing world.
    This flexible program can be completed in 13 months or over an extended period of time to meet your personal requirements. To discuss customizing a program of study, please email Richard Pacheco.

    *From January 2019, a newly designed Program of Studies Timetable will be introduced for all the international M.Ed. programs which will offer: 

    - Less summer time commitment - 3 face-to-face summer courses (currently 4), for 2 summers
    - Lower summer study accommodation and living expenses - 3 weeks, rather than 4, for 2 summers
    - Less stress during online courses - each course is studied individually

    Those students beginning their studies with an online course in January 2019 will be able to complete the M.Ed. in 16 months.

    The courses offered in the M.Ed. programs will remain unchanged.

    Note: The International Education/Educational Technology concentration program is NOT linked to Massachusetts teacher licensure.
