Do I need to take the courses in a specific order?
Privacy in the Western World is best taken before the other privacy courses, because it provides the concepts for Privacy in the USA and Privacy in Europe. The Capstone requires that you only start if you have followed all other courses; you need the knowledge of the other courses to complete the assignments, from standardisation to all privacy courses. If you already have prior knowledge regarding the courses, please test your knowledge in the last graded quiz to see if you have everything covered. If you have all relevant knowledge and insights, the capstone offers you the ultimate challenge.
