Seven new degrees approved for seven IU campuses | Administration - IU Newsroom

The Indiana University Board of Trustees has approved six new graduate degrees and one new undergraduate degree across seven campuses, including a collaborative Master of Science in education technology for learning -- offered by IU East, IUPUI, IU Kokomo, IU Southeast and IU South Bend -- through IU Online by Marah Yankey, senior news and media specialist with IU Communications.

The degree will prepare graduates to meet the urgent need for educators who can engage learners in 21st-century skills. Students in the program will follow a rigorous and innovative curriculum in which they learn to use digital tools to improve student learning.

IUPUI began offering education technology courses in 2009 as part of its education master's degree program, and after consultation with school districts and teachers, it developed a proposal for a teacher-focused online degree that would complement three education technology-related credentials offered by IU Bloomington. The curriculum of the proposed collaborative degree, however, is not as specialized as the IU Bloomington curriculum, which prepares graduates to pursue careers as e-learning developers and instructional designers. Instead, the new degree will focus on preparing current teachers to improve their own teaching or become instructional technology coordinators...

Data science has evolved as a broad, interdisciplinary field throughout academia and industry, and there is a demand for data science graduates who have sufficient knowledge in computing and statistics who can work with big data and manage data-driven projects. Graduates of this program will be prepared to pursue careers as data scientists, data analysts, quantitative developers, risk analytics leads, predictive modeling analysts, big data platform engineers and more.
