Curriculum

Program Structure

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.

Course Sequence

Students take 6–7 credit hours per semester as follows:

 
FALL TERM

Prerequisites

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.
