Middle Georgia State University’s Office of Graduate Studies is hosting information sessions about new master’s degrees in Management and Teaching. Classes in both programs begin this summer.

Here is the info session schedule:

Tuesday, April 11 – Middle Georgia State Warner Robins Campus: Walker Auditorium
Master of Science in Management Session: Noon to 2 pm
Master of Arts in Teaching Session: 2 to 4:00 pm

Thursday, April 13 – Middle Georgia State Macon Campus: Education Building, room 202
Master of Arts in Teaching Session: 2 to 4:00 pm

MGA’s Master of Arts in Teaching program is designed for people with bachelor's degrees in English, biology, math or history who want to get certification to teach at the high school level. MGA partnered with the Bibb County School District so students in the program can get extensive teaching experience as "graduate interns" at a local high school. Courses will be taught primarily online, with limited face-to-face interactive sessions and seminars flexibly scheduled to meet at the school where students are getting teaching experience or in the evenings.

Many of the Master of Science in Management classes will be offered face-to-face in the evenings at MGA's Warner Robins Campus, where the Office of Graduate Studies is based. MGA's School of Business consulted with Robins Air Force Base and other business and industry partners to come up with a program that provides career pathways in logistics and supply chain management. The degree is also designed to give bachelor's degree graduates in accounting the master's-level course hours they need to be eligible to take the CPA exam.

MGA became a state university in July 2015. Shortly after that, the University rolled out the Master of Science in Information Technology, with concentrations in Information Security & Digital Forensics, Software Development and Health Informatics, and the Master of Science in Nursing: Adult/Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner. Besides the just-approved Management and Teaching degrees, other graduate programs are in various stages of development.
