The Master of Internet Technology program is designed for working professionals. Coursework is delivered online through UGA's distance-learning programs.
MIT coursework is completed in 2 years. Each cohort begins in the fall term (August) and continues for 5 semesters.
While the first year focuses solely on coursework, the second year allows students to put their new skills to use and gain real-world experience on a corporate project.
Students take 6–7 credit hours per semester as follows:
|Fall Term||Spring Term||Summer Term|
Although not required at the time of application, these prerequisites must be met before the start of the above listed coursework:
- Undergraduate degree from an accredited institution
While students benefit from having degrees in business, computer science or related areas, this is not a requirement for the program. Many students enroll with undergraduate degrees in liberal arts or other areas not related to business or computing.
- Introductory course in Java
The course should include introductory programming concepts and Java syntax. Those who have taken courses in an object-oriented computer programming language and have had the equivalent of at least one year programming experience are exempt from this requirement. Java courses are offered locally or online, including through the UGA Center for Continuing Education.
- A laptop computer and internet connection
All students are required to have a laptop computer with internet connection.
