South Georgia College is a two-year college focused on a core of strong teaching and personalized academic advising. It has a long and distinguished tradition of service to the people of Georgia. Founded in 1906 in the town of Douglas, SGC sits on 190 acres in this rural southeast Georgia town.
South Georgia's nearly 1,500 students come primarily from southeastern and south central Georgia, but the college's residential facilities enable the institution to draw students from other regions of the state, neighboring states and foreign countries. The average student is 24-years-old, and 60 percent are women.
Students pursue associate degrees in 23 majors which transfer to other institutions, and associate degrees and certificate programs in 10 majors designed to prepare them for careers in nursing, business and information systems. The college's Nightingale Mobile Clinic allows South Georgia College's nursing students to develop strong clinical skills and the ability to function as members of an interdisciplinary team while they work side-by-side with college faculty to deliver primary health care in a community setting. The school also offers students the opportunity to study abroad. Students may study in Costa Rica while living with local families and learning Spanish in small, intensive classes. South Georgia College students go on to attend four-year institutions within Georgia and outside the state with an excellent foundation in the core curriculum.
