UGA-Gwinnett Campus to host Double Dawg Day

Lawrenceville, Ga. – The University of Georgia Gwinnett Campus is holding an open house for working professionals to learn about continuing their education at the first annual Double Dawg Day on Oct. 25 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Double Dawg Day is a free event for anyone interested in earning a master’s or doctoral degree from UGA while still working full-time in the metro-Atlanta area. Alumni are especially encouraged to come and learn about doubling their degrees. The open house at UGA-Gwinnett features informational workshops, tours and a graduate program fair where prospective students can meet representatives from the graduate and professional programs offered for working students.

“This is a great opportunity for working professionals to begin thinking about graduate education in an environment that is tailored to their needs,” said Laura Crawley, director of UGA-Gwinnett Campus. “Double Dawg Day inspires alumni to consider pursuing their next degree while working full-time. The UGA-Gwinnett Campus is here to help students achieve their educational and professional goals.”

UGA-Gwinnett provides graduate-level programs for working professionals in the Atlanta region by hosting more than 20 degree programs, including 12 master’s degrees, four educational specialist degrees, three doctoral degrees and three graduate certificate programs. With a variety of degree programs, the campus responds to critical needs in fields like K-12 education and meets emerging needs in professional-academic fields, such as pharmaceutical regulatory affairs, information technology, social work, public administration, sport management and business.
