What our students say about our programs:

M.S. in Educational Technology

“MNSU's Technology Education 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 systems...free applications galore!  After 20 years in education, I didn't think I could get this excited about educational change!”

Scott Tiedens

“Classmates became teachers, coaches, and friends with the very first project. Thanks to my them and my professor I was able to use each new technology tool in a classroom setting almost as quickly I could learn about it.”

Tammy Hoppe

“This course is one that I recommend to any teacher—even those uncertain of their own technological skills. The support within the class by the teacher and students is incredible. There is so much that can be accomplished educationally with technology and as a learner you feel you can become a better educator because of the experience.”

Meg Lahammer

School Library and Information Studies

I researched several programs around the United States. I chose the SLIS Program at MSU, Mankato for several reasons. I appreciate that the program offers all the courses that are required (some programs require students take a course or more from outside the institution to fulfill program requirements). The tuition is very reasonable. I like that the SLIS Program can include a master’s degree…”

Wayne A., Washington

“This SLIS program was just the program I was looking for. Everyone, so far, that I have had to deal with has been very accommodating and helpful. I've been able to do all my business over the phone or online. Also, I know many previous students who are and were attending there and liked the school… My new place of employment requires me to be licensed in the library in order to retain the position.”

Sandra H., Media Specialist, MN

“I needed an on-line program and only MSU offered it. The classes are helpful and it is worth the time and money to have the added (master’s) degree, both personally and professionally.”
