Graduate Programs in Organizational Leadership (OLS)

The MS Technology program is designed so that people holding a BS degree in a technology discipline or a related area can earn the degree either as a full-time student or as a part-time student working full-time. The program can be completed in three to five semesters, and must be completed within five years. Courses are available in online, hybrid, and face-to-face formats.

While earning the MS in Technology within the TLC Department, you can focus your coursework on Leadership, Human Resource Development, and/or Technical Communication. In addition, you can earn a graduate certificate in Human Resource Development (HRD).

Graduate Certificates

We also offer a graduate certificate for students holding a Bachelor's degree but do not want to commit to a graduate degree program.
