Finish What You Started With GSC Weekend College

Gordon State's Weekend College may be the answer for many adults who have put a college degree on pause because of work, family and other responsibilities.

Adult learners can earn a bachelor's degree in human services at an accelerated pace through participation in Weekend College. Classes will be held one weekend per month at Gordon State College at McDonough and remaining coursework is completed online.

Classes begin Jan. 7, 2015.

"Unlike traditional college degree programs, Weekend College may assign up to 24 credits of prior learning acquired through work experience, educational experience, workplace training or courses that did not carry college credit," said Program Coordinator Melinda Hawley, associate professor of Human Services, Business and Public Service. "The human services bachelor's degree prepares students for a wide variety of occupations in a fast-growing and diverse field."

Major employers of human services degree holders include state and local governments and a variety of non-government organizations.

Weekend College is held at Gordon State College at McDonough. Classrooms are located in a wing of Henry County High School, near the Performing Arts Center.
