Our focus is providing education that transforms the intellectual lives of students as it challenges them to deepen their understanding of social, ethical, and global issues, as well as their own place in a complex evolving world.
Sustained critical inquiry lies at the heart of an East Georgia State College education. Our goal is to enable students to develop themselves as productive members of society who can think clearly and critically, understand and respect differences, and express themselves persuasively.
We seek to provide an academically challenging and lively community of students and teachers who are committed to intellectual growth through individual and collaborative endeavors.
East Georgia State College graduates are prepared for lives of responsible leadership, enhanced by continued learning, and enriched by lasting values.
Let us help you achieve your path to a better life through one of our many programs of study.
