If you ever decided against FHSU because of that "pesky" MLS...

Have I got news for you! :)

I just found out that Fort Hays State U is offering an IT-courses-only masters degree, the "Master of Professional Studies" , online. This is a MUCH nicer deal than the MLS, which required 3-4 "liberal studies" classes to get the degree.

They have several concentrations, and I don't know much but I do know that the Networking side of things is based on Cisco technologies. They have virtual labs and their classes can help students towards the CCNP and other certs.

I have been on the certification "side" of things for years but this is intriguing.

Is anyone here currently a FHSU student??

    The MLS is not pesky! I'm glad we have a decent-but-improving soccer league on North American soil!

    Oh, wait, you mean the formatting spec. . . :D

    I'm interested to see if you have a link to the program you're referring to? I looked at the school recently and saw nothing about this on their site. Just checked it again and I still don't see anything like you describe. I may be missing it (I am old and feeble), so I'd appreciate it if you could post a link. Thanks.

    It is not on the site yet, as it is brand new. I just called the Informatics department for more info:

    Yeah, me too! I am little to conservative.
