About the program

Learning Sciences seeks to involve and create opportunities for all children and adults, making learning possible, available and better. Learning contexts are defined by the people who participate in them, the technologies that are present, and the social norms that structure how people work, play, and interact with others. Rather than teaching particular skills related to technology or media usage, this program focuses on the intersection of learning, media, and technology. The courses are integrated to help students develop a strong foundation in learning theory while building a repertoire of designing learning environments and assessing learning for the 21st century curriculum.

The LSMT Certificate is a twelve (12) credit hour program designed to transform your perspective on how learning occurs. Whether your chosen career is in education or industry, this program will help you think differently about how people are learning and equip you to improve the learning process in both formal and casual environments.

The School of Education offers advanced degrees in Learning Sciences. Students who are interested in pursuing a master’s or doctoral degree must complete an admission application to the department. If accepted into a degree-seeking program, graduate credits earned as part of the LSMT Certificate may be applied.
