Courses in the program help you understand learning theories and instructional design at the same time you are developing skills in new and emerging technologies, ensuring that you leave the program with the ability to design powerful and effective learning experiences. Our courses are rich and interactive, allowing you to get to know your professors and other students well.
Courses are taught by Western Oregon University faculty and outstanding specialists carefully selected to provide expertise in specific areas and to bring current perspectives from classroom teaching. Advisors will guide you towards successful completion of the program.
Western Oregon University is an accredited four-year public university and approved by the AK Dept of Ed to offer an online degree that meets a variety of interests for Alaskans.
On behalf of our faculty and staff in the College of Education (COE) we want to make your admissions into Western Oregon University Graduate School and the MSED program in the COE as smooth as possible. Enjoy your journey! Dr. Mary Bucy, MSED: Information Technology Coordinator
