Academic programs approved for Griffin

Several new academic programs for UGA’s Griffin campus were approved by the University Council at its final meeting of the academic year.

The new programs include a major in general business offered by the Terry College of Business and majors in microbiology and biology offered by the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences. All three will be available at the Griffin campus in the fall, pending board of regents’ approval. These are upper-division programs for transfer students or those seeking a second bachelor’s degree. Prospective transfer students need to have completed 60 transferable credit hours with a minimum 2.5 grade point average.

Two additional programs to be offered in fall 2008—a major in urban forestry offered by the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources and a major in special education offered by the College of Education—also were approved by the University Council.

“This is a significant step in the development of our Griffin campus,” said Provost Arnett C. Mace Jr. “By continuing to expand the number of academic programs available in Griffin, the University of Georgia is fulfilling its mission to serve the state.”
