Certificate of Advanced Study - Educational Technology Requirements

The Certificate of Advanced Study in Educational Technology is a postbaccalaureate program designed to provide professional and specialized preparation for the candidate interested in acquiring knowledge and skills essential for technology-related leadership in educational settings.

Students completing this program will be able to do the following:

  • describe the current and potential impact of advanced technologies on education and society
  • analyze instructional needs and determine viable uses of technology for meeting those needs
  • select and develop appropriate technology-based materials that correlate to curriculum objectives
  • model the effective use of technology within educational settings
  • demonstrate an understanding of the equitable and ethical use of technology
  • plan, implement, and evaluate programs that exemplify the effective use of technology to attain curriculum objectives

Up to six units of coursework taken while working on this certificate may be counted as elective units toward a Master of Arts in Education with an option in curriculum and instruction. Students who hold a valid California teaching credential may also apply to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) to have their files reviewed for the supplemental authorization "Computer Concepts and Applications."

Students who wish to pursue either of these options while working on the certificate should state such an intent early in their program so they can receive proper advising regarding master's or CTC requirements.
