E-Degree: New graduate program in internet technology at UGA approved by the Board of Regents

April 27, 2001

E-commerce is now an academic pursuit at the University of Georgia. The University System of Georgia Board of Regents on Wednesday approved a one-year masters degree in Internet technology that could become a popular career move for people looking to join the management ranks of an electronic commerce venture or Internet software developer.

Three departments at UGA will share responsibility for the new graduate program. Thirty-two credit hours over two semesters will be needed to graduate, with required courses taught by the Department of Management Information Systems, the Department of Computer Science and the New Media Institute.
