Master of Education in Learning and Technology
Western Governors University

Program Details

To help meet the urgent nationwide need for educators, WGU offers an affordable, accredited, online Master of Education in Learning and Technology (MEDLT) degree program. This program focuses on instructional design, research fundamentals, and technology integration. MEDLT graduates will be prepared to seamlessly integrate current and developing technologies into a learning environment, and will learn to be more effective instructors in any setting, from classrooms to corporate training.

WGU holds the same accreditation as many state universities. With unparalleled online flexibility, students can complete most of their coursework whenever and wherever works best for their schedule. Students also benefit from the competency-based learning model, which lets them pass most courses as quickly as they prove mastery of the material, making it possible to accelerate their progress and potentially graduate faster. Additionally, Faculty Mentors work one-on-one with WGU students, providing dedicated coaching, guidance, and support from enrollment through graduation.

Requirements

The program requires a total of 30 competency units (CUs), the equivalent to the traditional credit hour. 

Admission requirements:

  • Provide official transcripts that demonstrate you have earned a bachelor’s degree from a recognized accredited university
  • Meet any program-specific admissions requirements
  • Interview with a WGU Enrollment Counselor

School Accreditation Statement

Western Governors University is the only university to have received simultaneous accreditation by four regional accrediting commissions. Currently, WGU's "home" accrediting commission is the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, the same organization that accredits such leading institutions as the University of Washington, University of Oregon, University of Utah, Brigham Young University, and other public and private colleges.
