Do I need to take the courses in the program in order?

The Capstone course needs to be taken either with or after Critical Data Thinking & Storytelling and Data Visualization & Design courses.

How much study time outside of class is there for each class?

The answer to this question varies, but most past students say for every hour in class they spent 1.5-3 hours outside of class completing reading, exercises, and watching videos.

How long does it take to complete the program?

There are three (3) courses. All courses can be taken in a single semester at night. Anticipate that it will take 20+ hours per week between in class and out of class if taking all three courses. Alternatively, students can divide courses into 2 or 3 semesters. Our belief is that students that take one class per semester for three semesters get the most overall value out of certification.

What is the cost of books and other supplies?

The program utilizes three books that in total all three cost less than $100, and students are asked to purchase in the format they prefer.  The rest of articles, videos, and podcasts utilized are free of charge to access.  Each student is expected to have access to a computer and Internet.

Are there assignments for each course?

Each course is graded on a pass/fail basis where students are asked to complete a variety of assignments to ensure a good level of course understanding. Students are given feedback on each assignment.

How do I obtain a transcript of my course?

A complete, computerized transcript of each professional development activity attended at Minnesota State University, Mankato is maintained for those individuals completing a program. Individuals can request a transcript by sending an email to the Center for Talent Development. There is no charge to students for this service.

Is there a corporate discount available?

Yes. Companies with four (4) or more students in a class or in a program at the same time are eligible for a 10% corporate discount off per class. To get this discount, please contact the Center for Talent Development at cepd@mnsu.edu or 507-389-1094.

What is the cancellation policy for the program?
