The Masters in Education Technology and Applied Learning Science (METALS) is an 1-year professional Masters degree at Carnegie Mellon University’s Human-Computer Interaction Institute. The program is situated between design, computer science, and psychology drawing on areas of all three to inform better design, creation and evaluation of learning technologies. METALS graduates apply learning science principles, evidence-based research, and large-scale data analysis to design, create, and improve educational resources and technologies that enable students, instructors, and educational leaders to succeed.
