The Board of Trustees at its December 2009 meeting approved two new locations to better serve students in metro Atlanta. Beginning this year, the University will offer courses in the Forsyth-North Fulton area, and in Newnan.
In August, the Tift College of Education will begin offering the Master of Education in Early Childhood Education at local public school facilities in the Forsyth-North Fulton area. Plans are to eventually open a full Regional Academic Center in Forsyth-North Fulton with program offerings in the Stetson School of Business and Economics and the College of Continuing Professional Education in addition to degree programs offered by the Tift College of Education.
New programs that the Tift College of Education will offer in Newnan beginning next fall are bachelor’s degrees and initial certification courses in Early Childhood/Special Education and Early Care and Education. The College of Continuing and Professional Studies will begin offering in the fall of 2010 the Bachelor of Social Science in Public Safety. The College plans to introduce the Bachelor of Applied Science in Human Resources Administration and Development in Newnan in the fall of 2011.
