UGA expanding online graduate course offerings

The University of Georgia plans to launch seven new online programs in the fall, which would increase its current online graduate programs by more than a third.

The new programs will include a master’s of Internet technology degree, a master’s in food technology and several graduate programs through the College of Education, including Teaching of English as a Second Language.

Next year, UGA will also begin an online two-year degree-completion bachelor’s of business administration program to accompany the existing bachelor’s of science degree-completion program in special education. Both are aimed at working professionals with previous college credits who are looking to advance their careers.

The university currently offers 11 online graduate programs in areas such as adult education, pharmaceutical and biomedical regulatory affairs, instructional technology and reading education.
