With no out-of-state tuition and no hidden fees, Freed-Hardeman’s graduate tuition rates are comparable to those of public institutions. Financial aid is available through veterans’ benefits as well as low-interest loans such as the Stafford and Perkins loan programs. In addition to financial aid, you may pay your account by using Tuition Management Systems (TMS). For more information on this interest-free monthly payment plan, visit their website at www.afford.com/fhu.
What is the capstone project?
This 6-hour capstone includes a self-directed project, in which candidates collaborate with colleagues within or across grade levels or departments to incorporate technological innovations into their curricula. Throughout the seminar, an ePortfolio is built to demonstrate the development, implementation and outcomes of the project. This is designed as a capstone experience that provides candidates the opportunity to apply prior knowledge and skills gained from other courses in the program. The students will demonstrate in their ePortfolio a clear understanding of the implementation of the International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards for students, teachers, administrators, and coaches in the K-12 setting.
What is the comprehensive oral defense?
The final Master's exam will be a comprehensive oral defense. This exam will be conducted through live-streaming. The oral defense will take place during the candidate’s capstone course. Questions related to the work in the program will test the candidate's preparation and ability to synthesize and practically apply information obtained from courses, self-directed study, and project experiences. The purpose of the exam is a checkpoint to assure that candidates have acquired the critically required skills and knowledge specified in the Instructional Technology program competencies.
