College of Coastal Georgia
As a state college of the University System of Georgia, the College of Coastal Georgia – a four-year institution – has as its mission to provide targeted baccalaureate programs of study, pre-baccalaureate programs of study for transfer, preparation for immediate employment in a variety of technical program areas, assistance to students who are academically under-prepared for college-level study, and lifelong learning opportunities for workforce development, career enhancement, and personal enrichment.
During the 2008-2009 academic year, the College of Coastal Georgia is transitioning to become a baccalaureate-degree-granting institution. The first steps toward this expanded mission will be taken by seeking a new level of accreditation to offer bachelor’s degree programs in business administration, early childhood education, middle grades education, and nursing.
- The College of Coastal Georgia continues to offer associate degree programs and transfer credit options. Over the course of the next year, the College is planning a wide range of campus improvements and mission enhancements.
- These initiatives are designed to improve academic offerings and develop improved student life. The College will be exploring options for food service, residential facilities, health services, and expanded social offerings.
- In addition to our diverse academic programs, there are a host of training courses, continuing education courses, adult literacy programs, high school partnerships and programs for children.
- Currently the College enrolls approximately 3000 students, resulting in approximately a 1:30 faculty/student ratio.
- Coastal Georgia had an economic impact of more than $69.7 million during FY 2010.
