GMC implements new degree programs

By STAFF REPORTS

Georgia Military College has implemented three new degree programs — with a fourth pending approval by The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).

Beginning this fall, GMC will offer two new Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees in Allied Health and Technical Studies, and a new Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree in Healthcare Management. Pending SACSCOC approval, a BAS degree in Homeland Security and Emergency Management is planned for implementation later this academic year.

“It is important for Georgia Military College to continue to investigate ways to expand its degree offerings,” said GMC Associate Chief Academic Officer Dr. Derek Stone. “Additional degree programs allow GMC students to continue to pursue associate-level degrees in relevant fields, as well as provide additional pathways for them to obtain their four-year degree through GMC’s Bachelor of Applied Science Degree programs.”

The AAS in Allied Health Science degree program is designed to prepare students for entry in positions in health careers or supporting roles.

The BAS in Healthcare Management degree program is designed to prepare students for careers in healthcare management and related fields. The BAS in Homeland Security and Emergency Management program is planned to be implemented in the winter of 2021, pending SACSCOC approval.
