Higher Education


Georgia Regents University: Life-changing research. A life-changing education.

Leading in education and in the advancement of knowledge, Georgia Regents University is building on a nationally respected foundation of medical education and research achievement with expanded offerings in business and arts and sciences. With an enrollment of 10,000 students and a full-time faculty of 1,000, GRU is comprised of nine colleges and schools, including:

A degree that carries weight: For students at all levels, undergraduate through doctorate, a GRU degree is a meaningful credential, and just one of the stellar advantages of attending a leading research university offering a technology-rich environment and a faculty of scholars, scientists, clinicians and artists immersed in cutting-edge research. As the boundaries of knowledge are explored and expanded, society reaps the benefits, and so do students in an educational experience second to none.

Many of GRU’s social and cultural activities, like the Presidential Lecture series, are assets enjoyed by the entire community, and everyone finds plenty to cheer in Division II sports, including basketball, baseball, and track, and Division I golf—particularly the men’s recent back-to-back national championships.


Augusta Technical College: Strategic skills for industry.


The only technical school in Georgia to win the U.S. Secretary of Education’s Award of Excellence, the Augusta Technical College of Georgia offers over 100 programs of study, including Allied Health and Nursing as well Information, Engineering, Chemical, Industrial and Engineering Technologies. A newly launched Nuclear Engineering Technology program will support the area’s growing need for nuclear expertise created by expanding opportunities at Plant Vogtle and the Savannah River Site. And for all area business and industry, ATC is a valuable resource for customized education, job training, and retraining.


More choice: At home and nearby.
