College of Coastal Georgia to Offer Bachelor's Degrees in Camden County
Starting this fall, students interested in earning a bachelor’s degree near Jacksonville and Camden will be able to do so in business, psychology, or interdisciplinary studies at the College of Coastal Georgia’s Camden Center. Through a mix of in classroom and online offerings, the change will save Camden County and Jacksonville area students expenses and time related to travel to its Brunswick Campus.
”The College of Coastal Georgia is committed to making educational opportunities more accessible for Camden County and North Florida” said Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Tracy Pellett. “The expansion of these three degree offerings is a natural fit with student and employer demand and community need.” “There are a number of service and professional jobs that necessitate and require the skill sets of a baccalaureate trained individual. We have no doubt that we will be adding additional 4-year degree programs in the near future if the demand and interest from the area continues.”
The Camden Center will continue to offer the full catalog of associates degrees for transfer as well as a career associates degree in the University System of Georgia’s only AFC accredited Culinary Arts program.
The College is currently accepting application for Fall 2016 entry, as well as the 2016 Summer Session, which begins on June 1. For information on applying for Summer or Fall entry, visit www.ccga.edu/admissions or call 912-279-5701.
