Certificate in Training Systems Development
The program prepares students for careers as trainers in corporations and public service agencies, as instructional multimedia designers and producers, and as specialists in instructional computing and software design. Graduates of the program include: corporate trainers, instructional materials designers, computer instructors, multimedia developers, instructional software developers, video producers, classroom teachers seeking advanced computer applications skills, and training consultants. The program emphasizes the instructional systems approach, cognitivist principles of learning design, practical design experience, and project-based courses. During their studies, students may develop a portfolio which includes instructional computing software, instructional print materials, video and multimedia instructional programs. For additional information, contact the department chair.
The Certificate in Training Systems Development is designed for students who do not wish to earn a master's degree, or for those who have already earned a master's degree in a related field. The purpose of the graduate certificate is to develop and update skills and knowledge in the specific area of training design and development in order for students to advance to new positions in corporate or public agency training departments. It offers professional training program developers an opportunity to strengthen and augment their skills. This program is especially useful to students who already hold a master's degree in a related field, such as industrial psychology, radio and television, or human resource development, or for those who need documentation in training competencies to meet governmental requirements.

Field Study Requirements. In order to complete the field study, the students must design, develop, and produce an instructional design project, using the instructional systems process, from needs analysis to formative evaluation. The instructional product may be in any medium: print, video, multimedia, or computer. The design process used in the development of the product must be described in writing, and any design document, such as performance objectives, storyboards, flowcharts, or scripts, must accompany the written description. The written description must include an introduction, statement of the instructional need or significance of the project, research review, description of the design methodology, and the formative evaluation of the product, and conclusion.
Master's Thesis. Students who wish to conduct a research study use the thesis as a way to demonstrate their research and scholarly interests and abilities. The thesis reports the results of a research study, which has been based on a question of theoretical or applied interest in the field of training or education. The thesis should reflect research questions and inquiry that demonstrate graduate-level capabilities.
