UGA-Griffin campus to host Academic Program Showcase for prospective students

Griffin, Ga. – The University of Georgia Griffin campus will host an Academic Program Showcase on June 14 from 12-2 p.m., providing prospective students the opportunity to learn more about the available degree programs.

The event, which will be held in the Student Learning Center, will allow guests to meet with academic program coordinators to talk about degree curricula and career opportunities, as well as meet the admissions counselors who will offer guidance in the application process to UGA. Weather permitting, visitors will be able to tour the campus led by a current UGA-Griffin student. The event is open to the public, and light refreshments will be served.

UGA-Griffin offers undergraduate degree completion programs in general business, consumer economics, microbiology, special education and agriculture to students who have completed at least two years of undergraduate course work. In addition, the campus offers graduate degree programs in math education, agricultural leadership and workforce education.

“The academic programs in Griffin provide our students with low student-to-faculty ratios, which allows personable instruction from world renowned faculty,” said Doris Christopher, assistant vice president for academic affairs. “Many students work on campus and perform cutting-edge research in our labs, giving them an advantage of real-world experience and marketability well before graduation. UGA-Griffin boasts a small college atmosphere with the benefits of obtaining a large university degree.”
