About the Program

The Ramapo College Program in Educational Technology can dramatically transform the roles of the teacher and student by bringing the world into the classroom. Advances in technology can accommodate diverse learning styles and performance levels, liberate teachers and students from the “one size fits all” model of education, enable students from dissimilar backgrounds to experience a common sense of accomplishment, provide bridges from school to career, and foster lifelong learning.

Ramapo College has been the recipient of competitive grant funding exceeding $6 million dollars from the National Science Foundation and New Jersey State Department of Education for teacher enhancement projects in science and technology.

Our courses are hybrid in design, blending the convenience of working at home or your own personal research space, with the advantages of face-to-face interaction with our professors and peers.

You will have the option of completing the NJ State Supervisors License by taking the four elective courses in the Masters in Ed Leadership Program.

All assignments and projects will be customized to the student’s own personal classroom and curriculum needs.

Utilize in-class assessed educational technology strategies as a highly effective classroom management tool!

There is an Optional Fully ONLINE Track for students whose personal demands preclude them from participating in a traditional on-campus commitment for two years.  Embedded in this track is the further flexibility of moving back to on-campus offerings when desired.

The MSET program is aimed at certified teachers who possess a career goal of attaining higher levels of professional competence. The program requires four core courses, a two-credit web-based learning project (Practicum), and four electives for a total of 34 credits.
