About the program
The Master of Distance Education & E-leaning (MDE) program is offered by the Graduate School of Management and Technology (GSMT) at the University of Maryland University College (UMUC) in partnership with the Center for Life-long Learning (C3L) at Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg (OL).
The Master of Distance Education program is designed for working adults who want to complete their degree without interrupting their careers, and aspire to enhancing their professional skills and competencies within or moving into the distance education field. The recent rapid growth of distance education – and e-learning – in both public and private education, as well as in the training sectors, has created an enormous demand for qualified professionals. The MDE provides the comprehensive, practical knowledge needed to lead the distance education enterprise within educational, business, government, and non-profit organizations.
The curriculum requires 36 credits of coursework and is divided into 15 credits of required core coursework, and 21 credits of required coursework, including a 3-credit capstone course, from one of the program specializations.
