The College of Coastal Georgia
Located on the southeast Atlantic coast in Brunswick, midway between Savannah and Jacksonville, Florida, the College of Coastal Georgia is an undergraduate college in the University System of Georgia. The College provides an affordable and interactive education in the natural beauty and abundant sunshine of Georgia’s Golden Isles, an area noted for world-class golf courses and resorts as well as amazing diversity of maritime habitats, wildlife and sea creatures.
The College offers baccalaureate degrees in American Studies, Biological Sciences, Business Administration, Education, Health Informatics, Mathematics, Nursing (BSN), Psychology, Public Affairs and recently added a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Through an active program of internships and service-learning, students team with community partners such as the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, the Jekyll Island Authority and the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, the Southeast Georgia Health System, and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center for exciting experiences in real-world application of coursework in the community. Students across all disciplines have meaningful opportunities to collaborate with faculty, co-authoring and co-presenting substantive research and reports.
This is a campus that can be accurately described as a caring community of involved, interactive students, faculty and staff. Students may come to Coastal Georgia for one reason, but they stay for many.
The College began offering classes in Camden County in 1983, initially on the Kings Bay military base. The 101,000 square-foot Camden Center opened in May 2004, featuring a beautiful rotunda, a 270-seat auditorium, classrooms, chemistry and biology laboratories, full-service library/learning center, the teaching kitchen and demonstration dining room. Joseph Lodmell is the Dean/Director of the Camden Center.
