Graduate Studies

Welcome to the Office of Graduate Studies. Academic year 2017-2018 marks our second full year of graduate education at Middle Georgia State University. If you are a recent graduate or a mid-career professional, we offer several affordable and convenient options for realizing a new career or even a major advancement in your current occupation.

In June 2017, we began our Master of Science in Management (MSM) and our Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT). With evening classes on the Warner Robins campus, the Management degree is particularly suited to RAFB employees, as well as for recent graduates who seek an additional degree in business. For students who already hold a baccalaureate degree in biology, math, English, or history, our MAT degree leads to initial certification in teaching secondary education.

We are pleased to report that we have enrolled a robust number of students for Spring 2018 in the Management degree, and we have nearly 100 students enrolled in our signature Master of Science in IT program. Also, please note that for both the MSN and the MSIT degrees, we have dropped the requirement for the GRE and now admit graduate students through a more flexible metric.

In Fall 2016, we graduated our first students from the Master of Science in IT program, and in Fall 2017 we graduated our first cohort in the Master of Science in Nursing program. The School of Health Sciences is currently accepting applications for its Fall 2018 MSN cohort, and the MAT program in MGA’s new School of Education and Behavioral Sciences is accepting students for its Summer 2018 cohort. Applicants to nursing should know that the MSN program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), having completed its candidacy in Summer of 2017.

We are also very excited about our new Graduate Certificate in Technical Writing and Digital Communications. This innovative program was developed by the Department of English, the Department of Media, Culture, and the Arts, and the School of IT. The first courses were offered during the fall of 2017, and its second semester has enrolled a strong class of MGA alums and current staff members. This professional certificate is completely online for a total of 15 credit hours.

Please call Graduate Admissions for questions about deadlines or other admissions matters. 478.929.6865. We are now reviewing applications for Summer and Fall Semesters 2018.

Let me say on behalf of the Director of Graduate Student Policy & Support Dr. Loretta Clayton and our Admissions Assistant Liz Douglas that we look forward to meeting you. Please give us a call!
