The MSU Mankato's Educationa Technology program is a 100% online. It offers comprehensive and flexible curriculum, instruction, and learner support to meet the increasing demands for educators, integrationists, designers, and leaders in educational technology.

We offer Master of Science degree in Educational Technology and 4 graduate certificates in the following areas:

  • Educational Technology in the Classroom
  • Instructional Design and Technology
  • Digital Educator
  • Technologist

After completing the MSET program, graduates contribute their knowledge, skills, and experiences in educational technology to various organizations, including P-12 schools, post-secondary institutions, as well as business and industry. 

  • At P-12 levels, many MSET graduates move into technology integrationist positions, saving the schools and districts on the high costs of hiring outside experts for technology training and implementation. Many become technology educators and teaching innovators in their subject matters. 
  • At post-secondary institutions, MSET graduates become designers and leaders in online/blended instruction, implementing technology tools and integration models effectively to support adult learners.
  • At business and industry organizations, MSET graduates work as elearning experts and managers to lead programs and departments for product design and employee training and development.

What Our Students Say About the MSET Program

Tara Boogerd, Technologist

  • "The MSET program at Minnesota State University, Mankato has changed the way I view my own learning, and my students' learning. As a busy wife, teacher, and mom of two young children, I needed a flexible graduate program that I could work into my already busy schedule. By the end of my first course, I was rethinking my pedagogy and creating useful digital products to use in my classroom. My favorite part of the MSET program has been the relationships I've formed with my classmates and professors. Everyone is willing to share ideas, ask questions, and learn from one another in a completely asynchronous environment."

Scott Tiedens, Teacher

  • “MNSU's Educational Technology program has been a great experience. The coursework has prepared me for the future while providing practical tools to meet the needs of 21st Century Learners!  Blogs, wiki's, avatars, cell phone classroom response applications galore!  After 20 years in education, I didn't think I could get this excited about educational change!”

Cory Pauling, Teacher

  • "The MSET program has been an unbelievable experience. When I was looking for a Masters program, I wanted one that would challenge me to become a better educator. This program delivered! From day one, the courses have pushed me to reevaluate my role as a teacher. They have given me knowledge and skills that helped reshape my pedagogy as I work with 21st century learners. The asynchronous online courses help to meet the needs of my demanding schedule."
