Wish you had forged ahead and earned your master’s degree before entering the workforce? Georgia College & State University’s Center for Graduate and Professional Learning in downtown Macon offers programs designed for busy lifestyles, with most classes meeting just once a week during the evening. Whether you are burnishing your credentials to advance in your field or preparing for further doctoral study, the Center can help you meet your goals without straining your schedule or budget.
The Center offers more than 25 graduate and certificate programs in a variety of fields, including business, accounting, criminal justice, education, public administration and nonprofit management, and health sciences such as nursing and kinesiology.
Wired and Student-Friendly
Since 2007, the Center, which has an enrollment of 600 students, has been located in the newly-renovated Jefferson Building on Cherry Street. The Macon Center provides state-of-the-art, computerized classrooms and labs along with other wi-fi resource centers with plenty of accessible parking. Its parent university has invested heavily in technology and was recognized recently by Intel as one of "the 50 most wired campuses in the country.”
Knowledge At Your Fingertips
The Center is an extension of Georgia College & State University, the state’s designated Public Liberal Arts University in nearby Milledgeville, which recently was ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of the best master's-level universities in the South, with a "private university" approach that includes a student to faculty ratio that averages 17 to 1.
Georgia College graduate faculty who teach in the professional graduate programs have extensive practical, hands-on experience in their fields, while those who teach in the traditional humanities and sciences programs are respected scholars who have prepared numerous students for further doctoral work.
