Potential MAETOL Degree Timeline

This is a hypothetical timeline that shows how a student can complete the Master of Arts in Educational Technology and Online Learning degree program at Thomas Edison State University in about 18 months.

To demonstrate how you could progress through the program over an 18-month period, we are using the January term as your first term and move through the program during the four graduate terms offered each year. Each term is 12 weeks.

The timeline is informational in nature and does not represent an actual program plan. Enrolled graduate students work with our deans and academic advisors to develop a program plan that maps out how a student will complete their degree and whether they can transfer previously earned graduate credits or earn graduate credit for what they know through prior learning assessment.
