Continuing & Professional Education

The mission of the Georgia College Department of Continuing and Professional Education, a unit of the School of Continuing and Professional Studies, is to enrich the economic, cultural, personal, and professional lives of Georgians through high-quality educational programs, comprehensive conference coordination, facility reservations, campus rentals and campus support services.

Admission to our courses is open to everyone. Interest and desire to learn are our only requirements. There are no educational prerequisites for most courses, and students are not required to send transcripts or take university entrance exams.

Over the next several months, the School of Continuing and Professional Studies will engage in an exciting new endeavor, as it will work hand-in-hand with the four academic colleges to begin offering online graduate-level certificate programs through the Department of Continuing and Professional Education.  In today’s rapidly changing world, workers may have up to 20 different careers over the course of their lifetimes and are in need of short-format credentials and certificates to provide the flexibility to change roles and industries at a moment’s notice.  Surveys of employers and job recruiters indicate that they also see the value of short-format certificates and credentials for “just-in-time” and “just enough” education.  With the addition of online graduate-level certificate programs to the array of programs and services offered by SCPS, the school hopes to help today’s workers retrain and retool for the rapidly changing job market.
