Become a recognized technology leader in your school or business with a graduate certificate in computer education.

Our courses are designed to benefit K-12 teachers, as well as trainers in business, nonprofit, or governmental settings. Plus, you will be learning from faculty who are national leaders in technology and education. U.S. News & World Report in 2014 listed Ball State's online graduate programs in education in the top 20 such programs in the nation.

Topics covered include: 

  • integrating technology into teaching
  • digital storytelling 
  • problem-based learning
  • instructional design
  • simulations
  • digital-based literacy
  • technology policy
  • distance education and online teaching tools

Indiana teachers may instead opt to earn a computer education teaching license.

Mode of Delivery

Students can select courses that allow them to complete the program entirely online. One optional course (EDTEC 665) is taken partly online and has a live component where students meet on five occasions at the Ball State Indianapolis Center.
