Educational Technology Leadership (ETL) program offers both a Masters Degree
(MA) and Graduate Certificates. All
courses are offered at a distance and are delivered entirely via the
Internet. Students never need to come to
campus. The program is part of the
Graduate School of Education and Human Development at The George Washington
University in Washington, D.C.
Masters Degree and Certificate students share the same courses. The certificates are each 18 credit hours in
length and are very focused on one aspect of the field like Instructional
Design, E-learning or Multimedia Development.
Whereas, the Masters Degree is 36 credit hours in length and is much
broader and extensive in nature. To help support our students, all ETL Masters
Degree and Graduate Certificate students receive program specific
administrative and technical support.
you choose to complete an ETL Graduate Certificate, all 18 credit hours may be
transferred to the ETL Masters Degree.
Since application requirements are somewhat different, acceptance into a
Graduate Certificate does not guarantee acceptance into the Masters Degree.
The George Washington
University does not
distinguish between distance and face-to-face degrees. Therefore, the diploma
or certificate you receive from the ETL program is similar to those received
from other face-to-face programs at the University.
six career-enhancing Graduate Certificates offered by the ETL program are:
Graduate Certificate in E-Learning
Graduate Certificate in Instructional Design
Graduate Certificate in Multimedia Development
Graduate Certificate in Training and Educational Technology
Graduate Certificate in Leadership in Educational Technology
Graduate Certificate in Integrating Technology into Education
