MPS in Instructional Design
The Master of Professional Studies (MPS) in Instructional Design, a fully online and application-oriented degree, will prepare students to become generalist instructional designers who are equipped to work in a variety of fields and professional settings, including both education and business environments. The program provides a breadth of foundational knowledge and skills in different areas, rather than a focus on a narrower area of specialization within the field, preparing instructional designers to work with technical specialists as well as subject matter experts and allowing them to develop more specialized interests as they grow in their profession.
Although equally important to in-person and online learning, the need for instructional designers has increased in response to the growth of online learning within educational institutions and online training programs within the corporate world. We expect the focus on and interest in instructional design will continue as institutions and corporations integrate online learning more fully into their educational and training approaches.
