Lynch School of Education

M.A in Learning Engineering

Interdisciplinary, experiential, and forward-thinking, the Master of Arts in Learning Engineering program at Boston College prepares students to design engaging learning experiences that are informed by the learning sciences and incorporate cutting-edge technologies. 

Learning Engineering is a one-year master's program focused on designing learning experiences and technologies that foster deep and meaningful learning and that are sensitive to the interests, backgrounds, cultures, attitudes, beliefs, and support needs of targeted learners. In addition to courses and modules focused on learning processes, motivation and engagement, assessment, learning technology design, and other topic areas, you will complete design challenges, shadow working professionals, and intern with local organizations. These experiences, coupled with design-studio work and reflective seminars, will help you develop intellectual, social justice, and communication skills needed to become a leader in designing and advocating for learners. You will graduate with a dynamic portfolio that showcases your ability to envision and design meaningful and engaging experiences that empower learners.  

Please forward this program description to students, peers, colleagues, and/or friends and relatives who are passionate about designing meaningful learning experiences and/or learning technologies, whether formal or informal, whether for children, youth, or adults, whether aimed at disciplinary learning or at self actualization. No engineering or computer science background is required. Inquiries may be directed to Co-Directors Janet Kolodner ( and Brian Smith (
