BRATTLEBORO, VT - Charles Christiansen, Jr., of Medford, Massachusetts, earned a Master of Science in Internet Engineering from the Persons School of Marlboro College.
Christiansen was among 77 students receiving master's degrees from the Persons School's three programs in August 2001: 40 for the Master of Science in Internet Strategy Management, 23 for the Master of Internet Engineering, and 14 for the Master of Arts in Teaching with Internet Strategies.
To graduate from any one of the Persons School's programs, students must complete a Capstone project, the equivalent of a traditional master's thesis. A Capstone project demonstrates mastery of the interdisciplinary curriculum and the implementation of an innovative concept for the use of the Internet in an organizational or educational setting.
Christiansen's Capstone was entitled, "Baseball Mogul Wireless," a fully functional wireless Internet implementation of the Baseball Mogul CD-ROM and HTML games. It was designed to allow fans of the game to play while traveling with their Wireless Application Protocol-enabled mobile devices such as cell phones.
