Middle Georgia State University

Middle Georgia’s most affordable option for higher education got a big promotion in mid-2015.

With about 8,000 students on campuses in Macon, Cochran, Dublin, Eastman and Warner Robins, plus many programs online, Middle Georgia State University is Georgia’s newest public university, having been upgraded from a “college” in July 2015. The institution, which dates back to 1884, is the region's top producer of bachelor's degree, associate’s degree and certificate graduates, and it expects to offer master’s degrees soon, initially in information technology and nursing. Those degree offerings are awaiting approval from the university’s accrediting agencies.

Middle Georgia State will remain imaginative and flexible in the ways it serves the higher education needs of a diverse population, including the area’s sizeable military community. The institution has been designated Military Friendly and a Yellow Ribbon School.

In addition to the coming master’s degrees, Middle Georgia State offers bachelor’s degrees in today’s most sought-after fields, including business, health sciences, information technology, new media, education and more. The university also offers select associate’s degrees and a limited number of certificates, many associated with the aviation field.

MGSU’s campuses offer opportunities that extend learning and experiences beyond the classroom. Residence halls are available on the Macon, Cochran and Eastman campuses.

The Eastman campus is home to the institution’s School of Aviation, where a fleet of airplanes and helicopters, flight simulators, air traffic control simulators, and technology used in the maintenance and repair of aircraft, are available for students interested in learning how to be a part of Georgia’s burgeoning aviation industry.

Accessibility and affordability are always among the top reasons students choose Middle Georgia State. The institution also offers a vibrant student life, including athletics. A member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, Middle Georgia State fields teams in baseball, softball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s soccer, and men’s and women’s tennis.
