Doctoral Cognate

Designation of Educational Technology as the cognate should be done with the guidance of the student's major advisor. The doctoral student should hold a preliminary consultation with a member of the EdTech graduate faculty at an early stage, and the dissertation committee should be formally established before the student enrolls in EdTech courses (particularly in the electives).

Students in the College of Education Ph.D. program (with specializations in curriculum & instruction, educational administration, or exceptionalities) and in the Ph.D. program in Educational Psychology are eligible for this cognate.

A doctoral student interested in some aspect of Educational Technology and whose doctoral program allows such a cognate area may consider the following:

  1. The cognate is comprised of five (5) courses, of which two (2) are required to assure a solid foundation in educational technology.
