The Master of Internet Technology program is designed for working professionals and is delivered through a hybrid format of scheduled and self-paced coursework. The 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 sponsored project.
Students take 6–7 credit hours per semester as follows:
Although not required at the time of application, these prerequisites must be met before the start of the above listed coursework:

|Guest Blog: Online Video Tutorials for Distance Education Students||
By: Lynn Cahoon
The library research resources available to distance learners and faculty have never been better. No matter what your topic or where you are studying, the books and articles you need are only a few clicks away. But to find them, you’ll have to learn to use the GIL online catalog and GALILEO databases, which can seem intimidating to the uninitiated.
|Guest Blog: Maybe We've Been Asking The Wrong Question||
A guest blog written by Dr. Theodore J. Kopcha of the Learning, Design, and Technology program at UGA Online.
I want to begin by saying that I love teaching online. I’ve done it for over 10 years and I could not imagine my teaching any other way – teaching online has forced me to face many realities and grow in my teaching practice. People are often surprised by my enthusiasm. Colleagues ask me if teaching online is the same as teaching face-to-face (which I’ve also taught).

The University of Georgia Bookstore is hosting a graduation fair until March 3 to kick off cap and gown sales for all candidates for spring graduation. Students can purchase announcements, graduation portraits, diploma frames and alumni merchandise.
