A private two-year college in northeast Georgia will soon begin offering four-year degrees.
The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools on Tuesday approved bachelor's degrees at Young Harris College starting in fall 2009. The college plans to offer degrees in biology, English, music and business and public policy.
Young Harris President Cathy Cox said the college will add more four-year degree programs over the next few years. Cox is the former Georgia Secretary of State.
The college is building new facilities and hiring more faculty in anticipation of enrollment growth from the new degrees.
