The on-line MS-GIST program began in 2014 and now accepts up to 30 students per semester. The BS-GIST undergraduate program began in 2015 and saw its first students graduate in 2018; it is one of the fastest growing on-line undergraduate majors at UA. Successful applicants will teach across the two programs.
