About the Program

The School of Technology Studies offers a graduate degree for working professionals, the Master of Science in Technology Studies (MS-TCST). Evening, online and hybrid courses permit part-time and full time study toward the Masters degree.

As technology shapes the new global economy, we need to stay current in this rapidly changing world.
