Michigan State University is now offering its doctoral program in Educational Psychology and Educational Technology online with a new hybrid option focused on the evolving role of technology in learning. The blended four- to five-year program, which combines online coursework with summer classes on campus, is designed to meet a growing demand from experienced education professionals who want to earn a Ph.D. while continuing in their current positions. This substantially online program is designed for the bright, established professionals currently serving in K-12 schools, universities, policy centers, and research institutions, who understand how new technologies, including online learning, continue to transform education.
This is an interesting and exciting opportunity! With the emergence of for-profit onlines like the University of Phoenix (http://www.phoenix.edu/), Walden University (http://www.waldenu.edu/), Capella University (http://www.capella.edu/) and others, the trend towards pursuing advanced degrees online seems to be really taking off. I’ll be interested to read more about the MSU program.
