What will I learn?

The NJIT Master of Science in Applied Science is designed to build on the foundations of New Jersey's educational merits by giving teachers their opportunity to grow, and bring it online to everyone else around the country. Because there are so many different science backgrounds taught to our youth at all different levels, participants in the Applied Science program at NJIT are allowed to choose from 9 different concentrations, ranging from Engineering Management to Computer Science, in the online program.

Program Objectives

The primary objective of the program is to 'educate the educators' in a concentrated science field at a high level, and apply current instructional design tools in that science field, to bring back to the classroom on their own.

Technology in Class and Learning - Various types of technology necessary to develop, use, and process the results of assessments as well as facilitate and augment instructional design.
