The courses in the Learning Design and Technology (LDT) MA program are fully online unless specified otherwise. Once admitted, students begin a plan of study that typically takes about two years to complete. You will create an online portfolio, referred to as a base camp. The base camp serves as a learning resource for your students, colleagues, and other professionals. The base camp is created throughout the LDT program and submitted for faculty review during the final semester. Consult the program website https://education.ucdenver.edu/academic-services/student-resources/graduate/learning-design-technology for more information about specific plans of study, course offerings and expectations of the program.
Courses are offered only in certain semesters and courses should be taken in a particular sequence based on when you start the program. Advising is required prior to enrolling in a course, even as a non-degree student, in order to ensure the most effective course sequencing and availability of courses.
MA Learning Design and Technology requires a total of 30 graduate-level semester hours plus portfolio in the final semester. Course requirements for the 30 semester hours are as follows:
- Students select one or two certificates from the five certificate options:
- INTE 5665 Learning with Social Media and Networking and INTE 6720 Research in Learning Design and Technology are required courses for the MA if not completed via a certificate
- Additional coursework to reach a total of 30 semester hours can be any graduate-level INTE course (INTE 6930 Internship: Learning Technologies is recommended) OR from the Thematic Course Categories plus Faculty Advisor approval
