Integrate technology into your classroom

Technology has become the forefront of our lives, and our classrooms. With an MSET degree from DSU, you can be at the forefront of contemporary teaching and technological learning processes as well as cutting-edge research technologies and designs.

Because of the rapid pace in which technology is changing, we continuously work to ensure our course offerings help you learn the latest and greatest technology tools and pedagogical approaches.

Gain proficient skills in a variety of software, hardware, and programming languages. Embellish your instructional skills within a tech-infused learning environment, which is key to enhancing your curriculum and becoming a leader in education.

Our MSET degree is unique because it is flexible and affordable. Take advantage of reduced tuition opportunities as a teacher in South Dakota and, since the entire program is offered online, you can work around your busy schedule.

MSET teacher certification

An MSET degree from DSU can help you earn more money, move into leadership roles in education, and expand opportunities to work in education, outside of the classroom. You don’t need a teacher certification or an undergraduate degree in education to enter our MSET program.

However, if this is the case, please be aware that the MSET does not lead to teacher certification in South Dakota, in educational technology, unless you hold (or are eligible for) a basic elementary, secondary, or K-12 teaching certification.

Furthermore, MSET grads may be eligible for DSU recommendation for certification or endorsement in states outside of South Dakota. Because teaching certification and licensure requirements vary from state to state, please know that we cannot guarantee certification in a particular state.
