More About the Program

The AMFT program uses an innovative block-scheduled cohort model to deliver classes, so students have the opportunity to participate in long-term in-depth internships with participating industrial partners. Program courses are offered two days a week in approximately 8-hour blocks for five semesters. Qualifying students may intern with industry partners on non-class days to obtain a valuable background of real-world applications throughout the program. Graduates who have participated in the internship program enter the workforce with not just a degree, but also the equivalent of a year of professional industrial experience.
