All students are required to have certain technology competencies before beginning graduate work at the Graduate School of Education
To acquire these skills, students may take courses at a community continuing education program, a computing-training center, or community college. These skills can also be self taught with the help of a textbook (such as the Visual Quickstart series) or the instruction manual for the specific software.
Because numerous courses in the program require additional technical competencies, students may wish to augment their basic proficiencies after entering their program by taking advantage of a variety of workshops on campus. Workshops are offered through the UB Information Technologies (IT) department and the UB libraries.
