Careers Go to top of page. Top

Educational Technology graduates have an array of career options available. Some graduates work in K–12 schools, others work in corporations, and still others apply their skills in government, healthcare, higher education, and other settings. Whatever the career, you will leave here with a skill set that will serve you well in the future.

Those who choose the Technology in Schools (TiS) focus can look forward to fulfilling careers including K–12 classroom teacher, media/technology specialist, or technology training specialist. The versatile nature of what you learn in the TiS focus lends itself to varied career paths.

The Online Educator focus will prepare you to teach in online venues and provide leadership in developing online offerings. In this rapidly developing and changing environment, you will find employment in virtual schools, higher education, government, business/industry, military, museum, and other settings offering public education.

For those who choose the Learning Technologies and Design (LT&D) focus, there are countless opportunities. Combining technology and human interaction opens the door to careers in research, software development, and other creative endeavors.
