Learning Format For Career and Technology Education Graduate Degree Coursework
Our graduate degree in career and technology education is designed to be completed 100% online. You’ll complete readings, assignments, discussions on Blackboard, individual projects and presentations, quizzes and tests throughout the semester. Recorded lectures via Mediasite will connect you with professors and other students on your own time. In all classes participation, done via Blackboard, related to recorded lectures can be done at your convenience, rather than during a specific time. To fulfill your graduation requirements for this program you must pass comprehensive exams, but to accommodate those who are not local, you can take your comprehensive exams from wherever you are located.
