Georgia Gwinnett College has again expanded its curriculum by introducing several new academic programs that further enhance educational opportunities for GGC students. New offerings in leadership, management information systems, political science, information technology, English and teacher education will be available in Fall 2011 to current and incoming students.

“These programs provide students with more options for customizing their education, based on their academic and career goals,” said Stas Preczewski, vice president for Academic and Student Affairs. “We continually examine opportunities to broaden our programs.”

GGC’s curriculum committee approved the addition of a leadership minor and concentration in the School of Business. This program is unique and one of the few pioneers of its kind within higher education. It is intended to prepare students for success in activities and positions requiring leadership knowledge and skills. The leadership concentration is available to business majors and the leadership minor is available to non-business majors.

The School of Business now also offers a concentration in management information systems, a specialized area at the interface of information technology and management science. The School of Liberal Arts has introduced minors in English and political science, both of which would augment other degrees with critical thinking skills useful in many employment situations. The School of Science and Technology has added a minor in information technology.

In addition, GGC’s new teacher education unit, which is housed in the School of Education, was recently approved by the Georgia Professional Standards Division. Students may pursue programs in early childhood education and special education that include an embedded endorsement for English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) as well as majors that lead to teaching certification in English, history, political science, biology and mathematics.

Students interested in Georgia Gwinnett College are encouraged to attend either a June 7 or June 28 Open House. For more information or to register for an Open House, visit www.ggc.edu.

The deadline to apply for the 2011 fall semester is July 1.
