Program Overview

Arizona State University Online offers a Master of Science in Global Technology and Development for students who are interested in developing their knowledge of international socioeconomic and political issues, with an emphasis of technology and the processes of globalization. Students will study about the disparity of wealth and value of currency and access to resources and basic needs. Students will learn about the role of technology in creating wealth in nations and its uses in business and industry. Students will also learn how culture, history, religion, and social organization are factored into the process of promoting technology in these areas. 

The program consists of classroom courses that emphasize real-world education through examination of cases. Those classes include global technology and development, technology and the international political system, special topics in area studies, quantitative methods in technology and development, quantitative analysis in technology and development, and regional studies.

Through completion of the program, students will have demonstrated the professionalism and skill necessary to earn the degree. The qualifications demonstrate the student has been able to apply the principles learned in the program into their eventual development as a functional affective professional in their field. These qualifications include the ability to identify and evaluate the theories of economic, social and political development and how they help us understand the impact of technology, to understand sociotechnical systems and scope of human activity globalized and revolutionized by technology, particularly in the current area of globalization, to understand the implications of technological development in environments other than their own society and culture, and to appreciate the factors that differ in various cultural, political and social contexts.
