Applicants to the program are generally teachers, administrators, and other staff who wish to enhance their overall knowledge and professional ability. This program is offered through the School of Education at AUM and is able to be taken entirely online. Program candidates typically complete the program in an approximately five semester period, though more time can be taken if desired.
The coursework of this program focuses on helping educators to understand the role that technology plays in supporting student learning and to bring about change in their current or intended place of work. This program is also appropriate for educators not working in a K-12 environment that wish to use technology in learning and teaching.
In order to complete this program, enrolled candidates must earn a minimum of 33 hours of credit from a range of sectional requirements. Of that total, nine hours come from a core of Curriculum and Teaching courses, three each from General Professional Studies and Evaluation of Teaching and Learning coursework, 15 from the Teaching Field area, and three from a Practicum in Education. All students are also required to complete a final Master's Comprehensive Exam at the end of the program.

The state of Alabama founded Auburn University at Montgomery in 1967, at the request of the Montgomery Chamber of Commerce. Then, like now, growing businesses desperately needed a deeper pool of educated employees. AUM's original mission involved support of government at all levels. Just seven miles east of the state capitol, today AUM continues to support a number of local, state and regional government functions, but our mission is much bigger.
Just as Montgomery is a far different city than it was in 1967, AUM looks much different today from those early years. AUM still serves working and part-time students, but the first-time full-time student population is on the rise. They offer more than 90 fields of study at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.The five colleges offers undergraduate and graduate classes in traditional, online and hybrid formats, with courses offered during the day, evenings and on weekends.
