The Master of Arts in Instructional Design and Technology (IDT) Program offered by CSUSB prepares professionals to utilize best practices in instructional design and emerging technologies to improve learning and training in various professional communities. The program emphasizes life-long, independent, and collaborative learning that cultivates leadership for change.

The IDT program prepares professionals to be instructional designers, improve use of instructional design & technology and support the use of technology in a variety of career paths:

  • Technology Coordinator at a school or district level,
  • Instructional Materials Developer,
  • Online Instructor,
  • Online Course Developer
  • Corporate Trainer, and
  • Digital Media Designer and Developer

While prior extensive technology experience is not mandatory, successful students typically possess a passion for learning technology and the ability to independently explore new technologies in various settings such as in the classroom or in the corporate world. The program's focus on fostering independent learning and leadership skills makes it a highly marketable option for individuals seeking to advance their careers in instructional design and technology.

The IDT program provides students with the option to pursue a Master of Arts degree in the field, and choose two different certificates, namely the Educational Technology and e-Learning Certificates. The program offers flexibility in terms of course delivery, with options for face-to-face, hybrid, or fully online courses, so that each student can select the course format that suits their unique circumstances. This versatility makes the program highly attractive to individuals seeking to pursue a career in instructional design and technology, as they can tailor their learning experience to meet their specific needs and preferences.
