6. What sort of equipment do I need in order to participate in the online portion of the Masters Program?
AMLA 610 and AMLA 612 are fully online courses! So, in non-technical terms, you need a computer that is fairly new (last 2 – 3 years preferable, 5 should be OK). You need to have internet access, and broadband or cable access is recommended. Your school or local library probably has this if you do not. You will also need a microphone, headset, and camera (all can be purchased for less than $100). As for software, the standard programs on most computers should suffice (Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel or equivalents). There is a free version (Open Office) that has all of these programs if you need them. Otherwise, everything that we do comes in a free version.
