Degrees & Programs

The University of North Georgia offers a broad range of academic programs from certificates and associate degrees through professional doctorate programs. You may begin your bachelor's degree on any of our campuses.  However, if you start on the Oconee or Cumming campuses, you will transition to the Gainesville or Dahlonega campus to complete your degree. You may also begin in an associate degree program on any campus and later transition to a bachelor’s degree on the Dahlonega or Gainesville campus. The associate degree is a 2-year degree that can be applied to a 4-year baccalaureate degree should the student choose to continue his/her post-secondary education.

Please select your degree pathway based on a desired academic major or advising area of concentrated study and campus location.

Pre-professional programs are those in which a student completes two to four years of college as a prerequisite for admission to a professional school. Pre-professional programs are career choices, not majors. These programs are divided into two categories: pre-baccalaureate and baccalaureate.

Pre-baccalaureate programs require two to three years of pre-professional courses. Upon successful completion of the pre-professional curriculum for a specific area and acceptance by a professional school, students transfer to that school to complete the baccalaureate or higher degree in the professional major. All students must choose a departmental major at UNG and work toward its completion along with pre-professional requirements. Baccalaureate programs involve the completion of an undergraduate degree before matriculation into professional school.

Certificate programs are non-transferable programs that take one year or less to complete and often complement other degree programs in which a student is enrolled.
