All students admitted to the master’s degree program are required to have their own personal computer, printer, and Internet service provider before they begin classes. A high-speed Internet access (through cable or a phone company) is preferred instead of dial-up service. Use of a Blackberry or similar handheld device as a sole means of accessing the Internet is insufficient, especially if you are a Distance Education student.
The program does not endorse any specific equipment or software or minimum processing speeds, hard drive space, or other specifications. However, it is safe to say that your computer should be “relatively new” and be able to run several programs simultaneously (e.g. be on the Internet and have Word documents open) and allow you to view videos clips. New and improved hardware and software are rapidly becoming available, which is why no specific recommendations can be made.
