About this Program

The School of Technology and Professional Services Management offers a graduate degree for working professionals, the Master of Science in Technology Studies. Evening, online, and hybrid courses permit part-time and full time study toward the master's degree.

As technology shapes the new global economy, we need to stay current in this rapidly changing world. Professionals must constantly update their knowledge and skills to cope with the spreading impact of change, beyond what many professional educational programs provide. This degree is designed to provide the knowledge and skills to lead and manage technological change.

Program Features

The key feature of our interdisciplinary program is to provide students with a set of "technology in society" core courses (12 cr). These courses are offered every fall and winter semester with rotating format including face-to-face, hybrid, and online. These core courses support a selected concentration (noted above) with a specific or a custom-designed program of study that includes six courses (15 cr).

The final requirement is a research capstone seminar (3 cr).

The program is designed for those interested in problem solving and critical thinking about the technological issues that affect people and the interaction of technology on a global, community, and individual level.

  • What is the Research Capstone?
    The capstone is the culminating experience in the Master of Science in Technology Studies program. This is an online course that provides an opportunity for students to integrate and apply what they have learned in their core and concentration courses with a clear purpose and objective relative to research topics in technology studies. The outcome will vary depending on topic, methodology, and approved format of final deliverable. Students will have a choice of two formats:  a research essay; or, a creative project, which includes a shorter essay plus project.
