UMass Boston’s MEd Program in Instructional Design offers a practical master’s degree that is ideal for career professionals engaged in the education, training and development of adult learners in the work place.
This multi-disciplinary academic program provides students with a dynamic learning process through a comprehensive course of study that gives equal importance to both the planning and the delivery of adult instruction.
Applications of instructional design can be seen today in business and industry; in schools and colleges, government agencies, and the military; in health care organizations, religious institutions, and professional societies. Using the principles and practices of adult education, the program’s theoretical and applied courses concentrate in three areas:
Building a foundation and conceptual framework for the instructional design process
Developing instructional strategies and skills to facilitate adult learning
Using educational media and technology to enhance learning
Official transcripts of all previous undergrad and graduate work
