The career fields for individuals who seek employment in applied technology or training and development are rapidly expanding. The expansion of opportunities, due to fundamental restructuring in both the private and public sectors of employment, is key to a global marketplace in which the current workforce must develop new skills.
The Graduate School requires that degree candidates in non-thesis seminar programs successfully complete an exit seminar (ATTD 5360)during the last semester of enrollment. All graduate courses for this degree are 100% Internet-based: there are no classroom sessions to attend!
