Georgia Gwinnett College to offer first fully online degree

Information technology (IT) was not Le Quang "Greatzel" Unabia’s first choice of study when she entered Georgia Gwinnett College (GGC). The student, who was born and raised in the Philippines and emigrated to the U.S. in 2016, originally thought she wanted to pursue psychology. But after one semester, she decided to try another major. She landed in IT with a concentration in software development.

Now a senior, who’s about to graduate next month, Unabia, 25, of Norcross has not looked back. And now, GGC will attract more students like Unabia by offering the IT‐software development major not only in the classroom but online, beginning summer 2021. It will be the college’s first degree offering that has both a face-to-face option and a fully online option.
