About the Program


The ITEC program is built upon the knowledge that successful organizations demand highly trained individuals to serve as technology leaders.

The Master of Science in Instructional Technology (ITEC) is designed to provide candidates with the knowledge and skills needed to become technology leaders and practitioners within their professional arenas. Whether your interests lie in education, business, government or non-profit organizations, a Master of Science in Instructional Technology will help you succeed.

By its design, the program offers a broad view of the field of instructional technology (e.g., history, theory, technology, management) yet is flexible enough to allow candidates to select an area of concentration reflective of their vocational interest.  Developing skills for leadership in and administration of these technological fields is the overarching goal of the ITEC program.

The ITEC program may be completed within two years. 95% of courses are available online! All ITEC courses have been approved by the Arkansas Department of Education as professional development hours.
