Notice to Prospective Doctoral (DSIT) Applicants - UPDATE

The Office of Graduate Studies, the School of Computing, and the Department of Information Technology wish to provide this update:

For a variety of calendar and accreditation review scheduling issues, we will not begin this program in fall of 2020 but anticipate its full implementation in the 2020-2021 Academic year, pending review by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission of Colleges (SACSOC). It is our intention to offer one seminar class with a brief residency in Summer 2021 as a "soft start" and a full semester of classes in Fall 2021 as a "hard start."

We continue to encourage emails of interest directed to graduateadmissions@mga.edu and/or the submission of complete application materials sent to the same email address. A formal application will include all materials listed on the Doctor of Science in Information Technology page.

Please call Drew McIntosh at 478-929-6865 for additional information or contact Dr. Neil Rigole in the School of Computing at neil.rigole@mga.edu. Remember, a student is not formally admitted until 1) the program is approved by SACSCOC, and 2) when an acceptance letter is received by the applicant from the School of Computing’s Department of Information Technology.

Finally, please see below the link to a WebEx information session OGS hosted several weeks ago, but disregard potential start dates as those dates continue to be – as noted above – conditional.

Welcome to the Office of Graduate Studies. If you are a recent graduate or a mid-career professional, we offer several affordable and convenient options for realizing a new graduate credential.

Academic year 2019-2020 marks our third full year of graduate education at Middle Georgia State University. In addition to new programs noted below, we are pleased to announce that we have again enrolled a record number of students for spring 2020.

On January 8, 2020, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia approved our first doctoral degree, the Doctorate of Science in Information Technology (DSIT). Pending approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SASCOC), we hope to begin offering this degree in the 2020 – 2021 academic year. Please contact 478.929.6865 in Graduate Studies or Dr. Neil Rigole in the School of Computing for more information. .

In spring of 2019, the University System of Georgia Board of Regents (BOR) approved a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MSOT). As we work through additional accrediting steps, please check this site for program updates. 

The BOR additionally approved a Master of Arts in Technical and Professional Writing, which was officially launched in fall 2019 and for which we are enjoying significant interest and enrollment.

With our new online format and 8-week session classes, the Management (MSM) degree is particularly suited to working adults, as well as to recent graduates who seek an additional business degree. Please see the Management site for recent changes in its admission standards. Note that for both the MSN and the MSIT degrees we have dropped the requirement for the GRE.

Please call Graduate Admissions for questions about deadlines or other admissions matters. 478.929.6865. On behalf of the Director of Graduate Student Policy & Support Dr. Loretta Clayton and our Admissions Specialist  we look forward to reviewing your application.
