Regents approve new academic programs for university’s campus in Griffin

Several new academic programs for the Griffin campus were approved recently by the University System of Georgia Board of Regents.

Three new undergraduate programs to be offered in fall 2007 were approved: a major in general business offered by UGA’s Terry College of Business, a major in microbiology offered by UGA’s Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, and a major in special education offered by UGA’s College of Education.

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.

The regents also approved a master’s degree program in agricultural leadership, to be offered by UGA’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences in fall 2007.
