About the Program
The Educational Technology Certificate of Graduate Study (COGS) program is offered in partnership with Rowan’s NCATE accredited College of Education. It includes a comprehensive picture of the use of technology in education today. The goal of this program is to provide educators with the knowledge and proficiencies needed to incorporate the existing and emerging educational technologies into their classrooms.
The Educational Technology COGS is a part-time program offered in an accelerated online format. It requires the completion of 15 graduate semester hours (5 courses) in 2.5 consecutive semesters. The courses that make up the Educational Technology COGS also serve as content area courses for the Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Teacher Leadership program. Therefore, the semester hours earned in the COGS are applicable to the M.Ed. degree requirements. In order to be admitted to the M.Ed. degree program students must submit a separate application.
Each course is scheduled in 8 week modules with each week of work starting every Tuesday at 8:00 a.m. and ending every Monday at midnight (Eastern Standard Time). The graduate-level courses listed here are not official and are subject to change. For an official list of available courses please visit the CGCE section tally.
