Graduate Study
Educational Technology - Graduate Certificate

The Graduate Certificate in Educational Technology is designed to assist current educators in becoming better teachers by utilizing new technologies to improve instructional practice. The introduction of new technology in the classroom will help participants re-think their own practice as teachers, evaluate their own beliefs about what helps students learn, and consider new ideas and perspectives that they might otherwise have overlooked or not encountered.

The scheduling of the certificate program allows flexibility to accommodate both full-time students and working professionals by offering accelerated summer study programs, as well as online and face-to-face courses.

This certificate program has been identified as the first three courses of the Educational Technology NP Endorsement concentration.

This program is not accredited by the Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board and is not recognized for initial, additional, or renewal of certification or salary enhancement (rank change) for K-12 educators in Kentucky.


To be considered for admission into the Graduate Certificate in Educational Technology, applicants must have completed a bachelor’s degree.
