The M.A. in Learning Sciences prepares students to apply the findings of learning sciences research to the solution of problems in a broad range of educational contexts. The M.A. in Learning Sciences is offered online.


The 30-semester-hour M.A. in Learning Sciences emphasizes the ways theory and research inform our understanding of learners, learning, instruction, and the technology and environments in which learning and instruction occur. Elective opportunities allow students to develop a multidisciplinary specialization, including technology and media, human development and motivation, and measurement and evaluation. The capstone experience is an internship/practicum that allows the student to apply knowledge of the Learning Sciences.
