Truett-McConnell awarded two more four-year degrees in baccalaureate transformation


The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools approved for two bachelorís degree programs to be added to the studies list of Truett-McConnell College Dec. 6.

As early as this spring students may sign up for courses offered for the Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies, said Dean of Institutional Support Edna Holcomb. Junior-level classes for a Bachelor of Science in Education degree will be offered in the fall 2006 semester at the Georgia Baptist school.

The approval of the two new bachelorís degrees is a continuation of the transformation of Truett-McConnell from a two-year school into a baccalaureate institution, a process which began in December 2002 with the approval of the collegeís first four-year degree program.
