Education, Online Teaching and Learning Option, M.S.


General Information


The Interdisciplinary Studies Cluster (College of Education and Allied Studies) program is built on the recognition that there are some issues that cross disciplines or professional areas within the College of Education and Allied Studies. It develops cross-disciplinary courses and experiences for students at the same time it provides a base for those subjects, programs, and faculty not currently embraced by any one department. It promotes interdisciplinary collaboration among students and faculty in the college, builds partnerships, and broadens program offerings for current and new students. By involving faculty from three or more departments in common endeavors, the Interdisciplinary Studies Cluster actively encourages cross-departmental renewal and innovation. The Cluster offers the M.S. in Education, Option in Online Teaching described below.

Option in Online Teaching and Learning


I. Prerequisites


To be admitted to the Online Teaching and Learning Option in the M.S. in Education, students meet normal Cal State East Bay requirements for admission to a graduate program in Education. Students from schools where English is not the primary language of instruction are required to achieve a TOEFL score of at least 213 (550 on the former grading scale) for admission to the program.

II. Curricular Requirements (45 units)


Students work with designated program advisors. Communication with advisors is by e-mail, telephone, and video conference as necessary. Student orientation to the program is by means of the program website.

Students complete 45 units of approved coursework. All work applied toward the 45 units must be at an average grade of “B” (3.0) or higher, and no graduate-level required course may be at a grade below “B.” Students who are qualified for admission to the program will be placed in the “Conditionally Classified Graduate” category. Upon completion of the University Writing Skills Requirement (which is satisfied with a “B” or better in OTL 6706 ), they will be placed in the “Classified Graduate” category. If students do not pass OTL 6706  with a “B” or better, they must take the Writing Skills Test (WST) to satisfy the University Writing Skills Requirement. If students do not pass the WST, they must take a course or courses (depending on the score they received on the WST), to improve their skills and satisfy the University Writing Skills Requirement. Students complete OTL 6899 Project  (4.5) as the capstone experience.
