SUNY Potsdam's Department of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) offers master's degree options that are designed to meet the needs of students pursuing advanced preparation in use of technology in business, government, or other organizational settings.

Candidates are encouraged to read about the programs below and make sure to indicate their desired program in their application letter and form.

  • Educational Technology Specialist (M.S.Ed.):  This program prepares students for technology leadership and management positions in businesses and organizations in private industry, the military, social service agencies, K-12 schools and higher education.

It is especially important that Chinese students select their program carefully. Many Chinese students are unable to speak with an adviser before arrival so it is important that they make an informed choice. International students that are not able to meet in person with their adviser before arrival are strongly advised to contact them by e-mail in advance.

For more information, contact Dr. Timothy Fossum, Department Chair, at (315) 267-2056 or
The Office of International Education and Programs can provide information on services for international students as well as  assistance with immigration questions and concerns.
