Masters in Educational Media
The Educational Media program at Dominican College, developed in consultation with leading educators and media professionals, prepares graduates to design and create multi-media instructional materials for the classroom.
The program has two instructional tracks: one for those who wish to become instructional designers, working in the media industry, and one for teachers holding initial certification.
As an instructional designer, your work may include creating documentaries, developing educational websites, or supporting and training teachers in the use of video, web, and graphic design. Instructional designers are also hired by businesses and by television and movie studios who seek to enhance their broadcast or video productions.
As a teacher with a degree in Educational Media, you will bring cutting edge technological resources to your classroom and be able to support other teachers as a computer coordinator or professional developer. If you are an initially certified teacher, the program leads to professional certification in your area, and enhances your credentials by providing you with an additional initial certification in Educational Technology.
