SUN JOO AHN

Sun Joo (Grace) Ahn, founding director of the Games and Virtual Environments Lab in the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, is exploring how digital technology can be used to encourage better food choices, more physical activity and better STEM learning in children. 

"My primary area of research lies in communication and more specifically the influence of virtual environments on people’s cognitive, affective and behavioral responses. I’m fascinated by how virtual experiences are able to meaningfully change the way that we interact in the physical world. The context of my studies largely falls into three categories: health, environmental and consumer behavior. I have also been working closely with the community by conducting field studies in a number of 4-H camps in Georgia to explore how virtual experiences can promote healthy choices in children. Despite the incredible speed of technological advancement and the explosion of popular interest in virtual environments such as virtual reality (e.g., Oculus Rift), augmented reality (e.g., Microsoft HoloLens), and video games, there is so much uncovered ground in these areas and so many unanswered questions. In short, I get to play with the most cutting-edge virtual devices and call it research — how could that be uninteresting?"

MORGANN LYLES

Morgann Lyles, a senior majoring in African American Studies, isn’t afraid of adventures—or changing her major—to suit her life’s goals. 

"I changed the course of my life by leaving my microbiology and pre-med intentions behind, but I believe that my current major more closely approximates the person I was created to be.  The one UGA experience I will always remember is getting to hear Congressman John Lewis speak for the first time at the annual Freedom Breakfast event my freshman year.  I spoke with him more informally during my summer Washington, D.C. internship.  He is one of my heroes because of his genuine desire to ensure that every human being living in the U.S. has access to the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness promised by the Declaration of Independence.  He fought for human rights alongside Dr. King, and he continues to do so today."

Study Abroad Program - Japan

The goal of the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fabric Design at UGA is to introduce students to the various aspects of fabric design including the design process, woven structure, textile concepts, surface printing, material exploration, and various non-woven techniques.  Research into new ideas, materials, methods, and design applications is continually explored.

Major students work with a variety of materials; master hand-manipulated techniques and tools that are essential in the various fabric processes; develop an appreciation for color, pattern, and texture; and must be willing to meet deadlines.  The ability to draw is essential in order to bring ideas to reality for most work, particularly flat pattern design.  The ability to visualize and construct objects in two-and three-dimensional forms is required.

Students achieve an insight into and understanding of the nature of the materials they choose to work with and are required to present an exhibition before graduation that demonstrates their achievement in developing a mature and cohesive body of work.

Areas of employment include designing for industry (e.g. carpet and rug design) or positions in a variety of textile firms.  Additional schooling is required in order to teach fabric design.  Other opportunities are available in community, adult education, and summer camp programs.  Outstanding craftsmen may establish their own studios, receive commissions from interior designers, or sell work through galleries, craft shops, etc.

Art - Area of Emphasis in Graphic Design http://bulletin.uga.edu/MajorsGeneral.aspx?MajorId=19 Art - Graphic Design

Graphic designers utilize communication tools such as computer images, symbols, logos, and typography to convey a message from a client to a particular audience.

Students pursuing the B.F.A. in Graphic Design at UGA should have a genuine interest in solving problems through visual communications that combine art and technology.  They must have an inherent sense of curiosity and inquisitiveness to solve graphics problems conceptually (both verbally and nonverbally) and are required to have an Apple Mac laptop for coursework; a digital camera is also recommended.  Courses include study of electronic design, layout, typography, photography, color techniques, three-dimensional design, graphic survey, illustration, and others. 

The Graphic Design profession prefers graphic specialists rather than generalists.  Students are therefore urged to concentrate in one particular direction such as illustration, typography, or packaging.  This is accomplished by the student's choice of graphic design elective courses and projects in the senior year.

Graduates accept professional positions in advertising agencies, printing and publishing, newspapers, design studios, television, manufacturing, and other graphics-related fields.  Clubs, charities, religious, and educational organizations are often in need of graphic design work as well.

MARK EITEMAN

College of Engineering professor Mark Eiteman wants students to understand and apply approaches to solving technical problems rather than just memorizing information, since many problems they will encounter don’t have easy answers.

“Research and instruction are inseparable parts of the process of higher education. As I conduct research and develop technologies, I keep up with and contribute to the new developments in my field. I can then convey these ideas to students, sharing my experiences and how I have tackled different problems. At the same time, communicating this technical information gives me a deeper appreciation for where the field came from and what its current limitations are. Understanding these limitations inspires new research directions.”

PAULA LEMONS

Paula Lemons, associate professor of biochemistry and molecular biology, uses findings from her research on science education to design curricula for her classes and tailor her interactions with students to enhance their learning outcomes.

“I am a biology education researcher, which means I use social scientific methods to investigate the teaching and learning of biology. There are two things that most interest me about my field of research. First, my research focuses on learning among undergraduates, and I often read literature about the developmental aspects of learning from little children to older adults. Second, I most often use qualitative methods in my research, and these methods are meant to provide researchers with deep, contextualized perspectives of the people or phenomena under investigation. I love the hunt to understand the subtleties and details that influence college education.”

Cali Callaway has covered just about as much ground as a student possibly can: three years as a lab researcher in regenerative medicine, developer of a guide for sexual assault resources, volunteer in the community, participant in a number of honor societies, and, for good measure, a world traveler. The Goldwater Scholar is on a clear path to becoming a physician.

“I joined Dr. Steve Stice in the Regenerative Bioscience Center as a freshman. In my time working in his laboratory, I dedicated a year to the development of a neural tube injury model in chickens incorporating mouse pluripotent stem cells. Although we produced some positive results, the project eventually reached a standstill. Seeking better outcomes, I ventured to Dr. Roger Kamm’s lab at MIT. This opportunity exposed me to a microfluidics platform for the study of neuromuscular junction formation, the basis of our chicken investigation. Thanks to the skills gained during this summer research experience, we spent the past year collaborating between the Kamm and Stice labs.”

Akinloye Ojo, associate professor of comparative literature and director of the African Studies Institute, wants his students to understand that no language, be it spoken in Europe or Africa, is inherently difficult.

"I love teaching the first-year Yoruba language and culture classes (YORB 1010 and 1020) because of the transformation that occurs in students’ language proficiency and cultural awareness. I particularly enjoy watching my students go from worried novice speakers to poised intermediate level speakers of the Yoruba language after just two semesters. In some exceptional cases, you end up with someone with near-native ability. We have had students who went to Nigeria in the summer after their first year in the program and were evaluated as being early advanced speakers by Yoruba language professors in Nigeria."

In addition to coordinating an interdisciplinary curriculum, the Criminal Justice studies program offers a variety of services and opportunities to its students.  These include, among others, new major orientation meetings, career seminars, and alumni networking opportunities.  Majors and other interested students are encouraged to participate in the Criminal Justice Society which sponsors speakers, field trips, and service projects.  Majors are accorded recognition for academic excellence through the local chapter of Alpha Phi Sigma and the National Criminal Justice Honor Society. 

Career opportunities for graduates include law enforcement at the local, state, or federal level; criminal prosecution or defense; institutional corrections positions; and others.  Some of these careers may require advanced degrees or additional formal and specialized training.

KAYLA ALWARD

Kayla Alward’s loving care for the calves at the UGA Dairy led to her selection as UGA and Southeast Student Employee of the Year. But her activity doesn’t stop there. She’s president of the Dairy Science Club, an ambassador for CAES and the recipient of several scholarships. And yes, her dream would be to own a dairy farm.

“I interned with Alta Genetics, which is a dairy, reproductive consulting company. The application and interview process was intense, with seven of us being selected for positions out of 150 students that applied. I worked and traveled around Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin where I learned reproductive techniques such as breeding and ultrasounding cows. I also had the opportunity to attend both sales and genetics training to further my knowledge of the art of sales as well as picking bulls, matework and consulting to farm managers to assist them in reaching their goals. During the summer, Alta held its annual showcase event in which the company invites dairy farmers from across the world to a certain location in the U.S. to tour elite and advanced dairy farms and share ideas. I was able to attend and assist with setting up the farm tours and met farmers from 31 countries. It was truly an amazing opportunity and lent me skills that will help me pursue a future with dairy cows!”

MARCOL HARVEY

Terry College alumnus and current law school student Marcol Harvey is committed to teaching young people who face obstacles that their dreams are attainable.

"After graduating from college, I was challenged by my mentor, professor Christopher Cornwell, to make a difference. I then returned home to work with the Talbot County schools. I worked primarily with Hawk Academy, an alternative middle school program. Having myself faced and overcome several obstacles presented by poverty, my primary objective was to motivate my students as I was living proof that dreams are attainable regardless of an individual’s current situation. I wanted to convince them that being in Hawk Academy was temporary, and that with God, mental toughness and a solid work ethic their lifelong dreams could still be obtainable. However, the Hawk Academy students and those students in regular school impacted my life more than I could have possibly imagined. As I entered law school, I knew that it was my duty to use the blessings that God had bestowed upon me to help not only my hometown, but those living in poverty across Georgia. That is when I decided to start the “One Smartboard At A Time” project.

A few weeks into my first year at Georgia Law, I had the opportunity to meet Dean Peter Rutledge. Dean Rutledge not only agreed to become my mentor, but encouraged me in my goal to donate my first smartboard back to Central Elementary/High School before fall 2016. At the end of my first semester of law school, members of the Georgia Law community agreed to match my contribution for smartboards. By the grace of God, I was offered a paid summer judicial internship by Judge John J. Ellington of the Georgia Court of Appeals. With my contribution, plus the matching dollars, this program successfully raised ,500 and was able to donate three smartboards to Central for the 2016-2017 school year."

MADISON JONES

Madison Jones has found that she can combine rigorous academics with service to the community at UGA, and considering she has been a Bulldog fan her whole life, her college choice was a pretty easy one.

“UGA was my No. 1 school. I looked into some other options to pursue athletics, but I couldn’t find anything with the rich history of a town like Athens and the elevated academics of UGA. The English and education departments at Georgia both impressed me and motivated me to attend UGA.”

Insects destroy about one-third of the food and fiber produced worldwide and transmit devastating pathogens of plants and animals; however, they also pollinate valuable food and forest crops, significantly increase the productivity of soils, and are important components in most food chains.

The Entomology major at UGA is a thorough, science-based, applied biology curriculum which provides a broad background of the study of insects: physiology; modern and classical methodologies of insect study; biological controls including population growth and pest effects on agricultural production and crops; species interactions and insect behavior; and ecosystems and ecology.  Students learn to identify multiple insects and other arthropods in order to manage them efficiently. 

The degree provides an excellent background for advanced studies in many other fields, including environmental health, industrial hygiene, toxicology, public health, epidemiology, ecology, and environmental engineering, and will satisfy entrance requirements for professional degree programs such as medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, optometry, and pharmacy.  Career opportunities are available in the private sector (e.g. agricultural industries, production, chemical companies, urban pest control), public sector (e.g. quarantine facilities, federal research laboratories, state departments of agriculture, regulatory agencies, departments of health), and non-governmental organizations (e.g. museums and botanical gardens).

WARING 'BUCK' TRIBLE

Senior Entomology major Buck Trible is a self-proclaimed lover, of all things, fire ants.  He credits UGA and the entomology department for “enabling my habit” of studying the misunderstood insect.

''I fell in love with fire ants sometime between my senior year of high school and freshman year of college.  Since then, I’ve been working in a handful of labs, done some research abroad, and spent a lot of time thinking about a group of bugs which—I promise—are a lot cooler than you may realize.  This school has treated me quite well.  My dream of becoming a scientist is now more realistic due to the incredible nurturing of this school.''

CHARLES ORGBORN III

Charles Orgbon III found his passion about environmental issues at an early age and turned it into a thriving organization that’s making a difference in the world.

"I valued UGA’s environmental economics and management program through the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, which offers an interdisciplinary approach to business and science. UGA was not on my radar until I chose to spend the summer of my junior year in high school working in a UGA Extension laboratory as a Young Scholar in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences’ Office of Diversity Relations. That summer, I was exposed to the real UGA—a beautiful campus, a lively college town, helpful professors and every student I encountered loved the school."

DAVID GATTIE

David Gattie, Associate Professor in the College of Engineering, is passionate about wanting his students to succeed.

''My primary responsibilities are in the Environmental Engineering program.  I really enjoy teaching freshman and sophomore courses because I have the opportunity to help younger students realize that they’re capable of doing far more than they might imagine.  Freshmen are oftentimes quite intimidated by their first year of college, and I take seriously my responsibility for building confidence in these students at this point in their lives.  In particular, my favorite courses are Introduction to Environmental Engineering and Sustainability and Energy Systems and the Environment.  These courses delve into significant aspects of the interrelationship between energy and environmental resources and how dependent we as a society are on maintaining that relationship without crippling our economy.''

ANNETTE POULSEN

Annette Poulsen, the Sterne Chair of Banking and Finance in the Terry College of Business, enjoys teaching a broad spectrum of students—from undergraduates in their first semester to graduate students in MBA, Executive MBA and Ph.D. programs.

“Before returning to academia, I was at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C., where I was the acting chief economist involved in policy decisions related to securities regulation.  Since coming to UGA in 1987, I have taught a broad spectrum of students at UGA, and at every level, it is enjoyable to get to know my students and to hear about their backgrounds and their hopes for the future. It is difficult to pick a favorite course of all time, but probably my current favorite is my class in which students manage an actual investment portfolio. The students analyze the market, make stock purchase and sale decisions, and report on their performance to a supervisory board of alumni and to the UGA Foundation. I also enjoy teaching Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities (CURO) seminars, introducing students to the research process and encouraging them in their own independently designed projects. And, of course, I loved teaching in the UGA at Oxford program last summer.”

The Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources hosts study abroad programs in British Columbia, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Antarctica, Fiji, Belize, Bulgaria, Costa Rica, Brazil and Finland.  For additional programs and information, click .

The Fisheries and Wildlife major at the University of Georgia is one of the premier programs in the country equipping students to become fishery and/or wildlife biologists.  The curriculum is broad-based and field-oriented, incorporating courses in biology, ecology, botany, and forestry to provide an understanding and experience of the interrelationships among the physical and biological elements of the natural environment; an appreciation of the social, political, and economic forces that influence fish and wildlife management; and the ability to analyze natural resource and habitat problems to forge realistic solutions. 

Students regularly participate in internships and faculty research projects and choose from one of three areas of emphasis:  

  • Wildlife Sciences – determining the biological and ecological conditions required for maintenance of healthy game and non-game species populations, how to tend these species, and manage their environments to meet wildlife conservation objectives.
  • Aquatic Sciences – developing a broad understanding of the aquatic environment, functioning of individual animals and their populations, the role of users of aquatic resources, and conservation management.
  • Wildlife Pre-Vet – fulfilling the requirements for entry into veterinary school with courses focused on animal behavior, wildlife physiology, nutrition, and disease.

Career opportunities include employment in public land management or regulatory agencies, wildlife or environmental consulting firms, conservation organizations, and private aquaculture ventures.  Students who complete the Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine are qualified to work in professional positions involving the integration of veterinary medicine and wildlife management, wildlife-human health issues, and wildlife disease.

Chrissie Brady is earning two seemingly unrelated degrees — in wildlife and fisheries and mechanical engineering — but has her sights set on integrating robotics into environmental education and wildlife management as well as educating others about the environment.

"When I first came to UGA, I was an intended biology major, but upon learning about the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources and the wildlife and fisheries major program it offered, I quickly found my passion for wildlife and switched majors. If I had known about Warnell when making my decision of which university to attend, my choice would have been much simpler. It turns out I got incredibly lucky and fate brought me to the perfect school for me!"

Food Science http://www.bulletin.uga.edu/MajorsGeneral.aspx?MajorId=74 Food Science

Food Science is the application of science, technology, and engineering to the study of food materials, ingredients, and their products; this knowledge is used by food scientists to make our foods safer, healthier, more tempting, and less likely to spoil. 

Food Science at UGA is an excellent major for students who like science and want to see practical applications of their knowledge.  Students take courses across several disciplines including (1) Biology – to understand the natural processes of fresh plant and animal products as they lose freshness; (2) Chemistry – to determine the quality and quantity of vitamins, minerals, and proteins in our foods when we eat them; (3) Microbiology – to understand the causes of food poisoning; and (4) Math and (5) Engineering – to help develop ways to treat foods, calculate expiration dates, and prevent outbreaks.  Food science students apply this knowledge in a series of practical courses that prepare them for careers in the food industry or governmental agencies, tailoring the major into either a Business or Science, Technology, & Engineering emphasis.   

Food Science graduates find employment in jobs across the food industry.  These include development positions to originate the needs and desires of today’s consumers, quality specialists to check products leaving for supermarket consumption, and design specialists to produce packaging that improves convenience of food preparation.  In addition, food scientists work for various government agencies (e.g. Food and Drug Administration) to ensure the safety of our food supply.

“Graduating from high school is almost like a miracle drug,” said Orpinas. “If you think of one thing that we could do to improve students’ health, it’s make sure kids have a good education and graduate from high school.”  The key to helping a student stay in school is spotting the signs and behaviors that put students at risk of dropping out earlier in their academic careers, she said.

ONYEKA OKEKE

My name is Onyeka Okeke, and I am from Marietta, Georgia. I graduated in May 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion and Behavior.

I chose to obtain my degree in public health because it brought together my passions for public service, healthcare, and science. From a young age, I knew I wanted to have an impact on the healthcare field and found public health to be a fulfilling way of doing so. I also admired the fact that, through public health, I would have the ability to positively influence the health of multiple communities.

During my time at UGA, I also had the wonderful opportunity of holding internships at the University of Michigan Health System, Emory Healthcare, and Piedmont Athens Regional. Each of these internships further exposed me to the nuances of our healthcare system and reinforced my desire to pursue a career in healthcare management.

UGA at Oxford Study Abroad Program; UGA in Paris

History investigates the profound and surprising differences between past worlds and our own, and at the same time it measures the common ground between them.

Studying history means analyzing the many forces that shape human experience, and learning to see how heterogeneous societies are, even within a single historical moment. Students develop both depth and breadth of knowledge of geographical regions of the world, time periods in history, and thematic approaches to understanding social, political, and economic changes in human societies. And in the process they learn to handle complex evidence with subtlety and skepticism, and to speak and write with concision and force. 

Every year the Department of History at the University of Georgia awards scholarships to help defray the cost of studying abroad, funding for senior research projects based on archival and original materials, and prizes in recognition of impressive research and writing.
 
A history degree from the University of Georgia makes students versatile, competitive candidates for all kinds of post-college careers: see the Department's guide to , read some  who are putting history into play in different careers, or catch one of the events in the .

SUSAN MATTERN

Susan Mattern, Distinguished Research Professor in the history department, enjoys focusing on big ideas and patterns across cultures. 

"I like to teach world history because to do that, I have to be learning constantly. I spent much of my early career doing very detailed research on sometimes obscure subjects, and it is fun to focus on big ideas and patterns across cultures. It is very easy to be wrong however, and I try to mix it up with projects that require more depth and keep my language skills engaged."

"Choosing to major in Human Development and Family Science was the most influential experience during my undergraduate career. The dedicated faculty, comprehensive curriculum, and diverse student body foster a learning environment that is conducive to personal & professional development and career exploration. The HDFS department's emphasis on experiential learning afforded me the opportunity to apply my theoretical knowledge about individuals, families, and communities through internship and leadership experiences that were fundamental to my education. These opportunities included working as the Assistant Clinic Coordinator at UGA's ASPIRE Clinic, serving as a FACS Student Ambassador, representing FACS as a Senator in UGA's Student Government Association, and leading college readiness information sessions for Athens youth. My experience in Human Development and Family Science gave me the skill set, knowledge, and confidence to enter the Master of Social Work program at the University of Pennsylvania."

Design-oriented, self-confident, self-disciplined, and inventive are essential qualities of students desiring to attain the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design at UGA.  Since Interior Design is a service profession, students must demonstrate a passion for function and aesthetics while being able to work with people to meet their needs.

The major curriculum includes courses in design history, interior finishes, furniture design, lighting, decorative arts, residential design, computer-aided design (CAD), studio courses, and many others.  Students express ideas verbally and visually through free-hand drawing, architectural drafting, physical and electronic models, and other graphic media; it is strongly recommended that students purchase a laptop computer.

Graduates pursue active careers in design of residences, offices, restaurants, hotels, spas, and resorts, but also work in health-related facilities, retail spaces, places of worship, schools, museums, theaters, government facilities, and interiors of transportation vehicles such as trains, ships, and airplanes.  Most graduates are affiliated with architectural non-residential interior design firms.  A significant number seek advanced degrees in interior or architectural design.

''My research focuses on foreign policy decision-making, which is increasingly interdisciplinary...there is always something new that we can learn.  But more fundamentally, foreign policy is simply important.  If you think about contemporary global problems—nuclear proliferation, global warming, political instability and violence, etc.—it’s hard for me to imagine a more important and dynamic field of inquiry.  If such problems are to be resolved, it will be through effective foreign policy.''

Landscape architecture is the analysis, planning, design, and management of the natural and built environment: parks, playgrounds, residential developments, campuses, shopping centers, gardens, golf courses, and many more.  Landscape architects enhance quality of life by adding beauty but are also problem solvers who analyze environmental impact, plan for pedestrian and automobile traffic, and determine the best use of each site.

The Bachelor of Landscape Architecture at UGA is a professional degree from one of the top-ranked programs in the nation.  Course work combines creativity, art, science, engineering, and responsibility across several areas of study including design, historic preservation, planning, grading and drainage, horticulture, ecology, and sustainability.  A required internship, service learning opportunities, design charrettes, and study abroad trips supplement student learning with real-world experience to build the most current knowledge and technical skills.    

Career opportunities are available in a variety of areas including urban design, city planning, environmental planning, historic preservation, and recreation.  Private and public agencies with large amounts of land regularly employ landscape architects (e.g. Disney, the National Park Service, Parks & Recreation departments, botanical gardens, universities, etc.).  Graduates often pursue further study, and/or certification with the state of Georgia after 18 months of professional practice.

An Associate Professor in the College of Environment and Design, Alfie Vick hopes his students will gain a unique appreciation of design.

''Landscape architecture can improve the ecological function of the built environment, create healthier human communities, and engage people with nature.  I enjoy the breadth of the field; we often are in the position of synthesizing information from many different disciplines and formulating it into an appropriate design response.  I hope my students gain an appreciation of design as problem-solving and an ability to frame the problem within the big-picture environmental, social and economic issues of the present and future.  One of my favorite things to do is take my classes to the State Botanical Garden of Georgia; the orange trail provides a great cross-section of Piedmont plant communities, and nothing beats an early morning hike, botanizing along the Middle Oconee River.''

The Linguistics major at the University of Georgia exposes students to several languages as part of the curriculum.  Courses are available in phonetics, morphology, semantics, history, discourse, and text to provide an understanding of speech sounds, words, and their arrangement.  Students build skills in analytical reasoning, critical thinking, clarity of expression, hypothesis testing, argumentation, and observation, choosing from one of four specializations:  Formal Linguistic Theory, Second Language Acquisition, Language Variation, or Historical Indo-European Linguistics.

Linguistics majors are well-equipped for a variety of graduate-level and professional programs from Linguistics and Communication Sciences to applied fields such as language instruction or interpretation.  Careers are available in advertising; journalism; governmental agencies such as the Foreign Service, FBI, CIA, or NSA; or the computing industry where linguists operate in speech recognition and analysis, natural language processing, and artificial intelligence.

AKINLOYE OJO

Associate Professor Akinloye Ojo wants his students to understand that no language, be it spoken in Europe or Africa, is inherently difficult.

''I love teaching the first-year Yoruba language and culture classes (YORB 1010 and 1020) because of the transformation that occurs in students’ language proficiency and cultural awareness...students go from worried novice speakers to poised intermediate level speakers of the Yoruba language after just two semesters. The most interesting thing about linguistics, I think, is the focus on one of the key capacities that makes us human—language—and its form, structure, acquisition, use, preservation and evolution over time.''

Jason Colquitt, William Harry Willson Distinguished Chair of the Department of Management, wants his students to see how applicable his field is.

''Everyone has worked for a good boss and a bad boss and had jobs they liked and disliked.  Organizational behavior explains these differences, which have a huge impact on how well people perform their jobs and how long they want to stay with their employer.  When my students leave my course and return to the working world, I want them to see the value in supplementing their experience and intuition with science-based wisdom.''

“Thinking about student thinking is the ultimate skill for a teacher. It enables a teacher to craft their lessons in ways that are relevant to their students, which affords students a greater opportunity to learn. I work to create a classroom environment that has the students putting their thinking on the table so that their mathematics becomes the focus of the course. From there we can develop and explore productive ways of thinking about the topics they will be expected to teach including how their students might learn those topics in transformational ways.”

MILTON MASCIADRI

Renowned double bassist Milton Masciadri attracts students from across the U.S. and around the world who come to UGA to study with him.

''The beauty of music is that it allows you to communicate with people all over the world without having necessarily to speak the language of the country you are visiting.  Music has taken me to all corners of the planet and allows me to enjoy my work worldwide.  My career as a performer has always transplanted to my studio teaching, trying to help the students to perform and extend their performing abilities nationally and internationally.  UGA has wonderful activities to take part in, but performing at the Performing Arts Center is a rewarding experience with its wonderful acoustics and design.  UGA is very fortunate to have this performance space...''

JEAN MARTIN-WILLIAMS

Jean Martin-Williams, Professor in the Hugh Hodgson School of Music, successfully combines her passions for teaching and performing.

''It is a rare individual who does not enjoy some type of music. It is fascinating to re-create a piece of music from the written score–there are many physical and technical decisions to be made, but that is just to give one the tools to be artistically expressive in a unique way.  I want my students to emerge from my studio not only with greater musical capabilities, but more awareness about how to succeed in anything they undertake and an overall confidence and joy in whatever they do.  We work hard, but we also have a lot of laughs.''

SUSAN WILDE

Susan Wilde, an assistant professor in the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources, views teaching, research and service as highly interrelated and complementary efforts.

“Working with students and collaborators on field and laboratory research investigating a neurologic disease that is killing waterfowl, eagles and other aquatic wildlife has been a major highlight of my career at UGA. We now know enough to initiate some management solutions, and I got the privilege of naming the new species of cyanobacteria growing on invasive aquatic plants that is responsible for producing the novel nerve toxin. We named it Aetokthonos hydrillicola; in cyanobacterial nomenclature the genus is Greek, and the species is Latin and it translates to “eagle killer, living on hydrilla.”

Scott Shamp, director of the New Media Institute and Professor in the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, says the thing he loves about digital media is that it is always changing.

''New media never sits still.  People ask me when new media will finally become old media.  I tell them as soon as people stop devising creative new ways to help people connect...so there will always be something new.  I love the flux.  Every day when I read about or learn something different about the capabilities of digital media, I can’t wait to share it with my students.  So my research is intimately tied to my teaching.  I love teaching NMIX2020 Intro to New Media.  With 300 students, there is an energy that you can just ride on.  The topics change every week, but digital media is such an important part of young people’s lives–they are genuinely interested in learning more.''

For LLSP ’18 Hailey Clark, ILA’s experiential Service-Learning opportunities played a crucial role in helping discover what motivates her as a leader.

“I have been tremendously influenced by my involvement in the Institute for Leadership Advancement as a Leonard Leadership Scholar. The two-year Scholars program provided me with insights into leadership in both an academic setting and in practice and challenged me to become my own version of a values-based, servant leader. For one year, I served as a project manager for the program’s capstone project. My team worked with Camp Horizon, an Atlanta-based nonprofit for children in the foster care system. The ups and downs in the journey of leading 13 of my high-achieving classmates to serve a remote client taught me who I want to be as both a leader and a follower.”

HENRY N. YOUNG

Henry N. Young, an associate professor in the College of Pharmacy, strives to create learning experiences that help students discover and construct knowledge for themselves.

“Teaching is a privilege and a great responsibility. The privilege involves touching people’s lives in ways that strive to improve their well-being. The responsibility deals with the charge of creating experiences that help learners discover and construct knowledge for themselves. My teaching centers on my belief that students must be engaged actively in the educational process in order to promote deep understanding and produce learning. I incorporate this belief into my classroom and mentoring activities by fostering discussion, independent and/or group research, exchanging expertise between classmates, and having students perform tasks with consequences.  My goal is to move students beyond knowledge gains to develop skills and critical reasoning.”

There is no one 'best' major for students interested in these areas, but it is critical that course selection includes both those science courses needed to assure a competitive score on the standardized admissions tests and the course prerequisites for admission to the medical, dental or optometry schools to which the student is interested in applying.

The primary focus of the Pre-Health Advising Office is to advise students on the various graduate and professional programs available in the healthcare field, the admission pre-requisites for those programs, and the application and interview process. All students are invited to the Pre-Health orientation offered several times during the Fall and Spring semesters. The orientation addresses where course admission requirements can be found, specific requirements for several medical, dental, optometry and osteopathic schools, how specific courses are helpful, national application services, statistics on the most recent accepted applicant pools including national admission test scores, qualities of successful applicants, resources for volunteering and shadowing, and services of the Pre-Health Advising Office.

We strongly encourage all students interested in pursuing a career in healthcare to make an appointment with one of the Pre-Health advisors in our office located in 102 Memorial Hall and to also join our email list-serv Pre-HealthUGA, .

As a student at the University of Georgia, it is important to understand that UGA does not have a pre-law major, per se. Therefore, you cannot declare pre-law as your major, nor can you graduate from UGA with a pre-law degree. However, as an incoming student, it is useful to inform your academic advisor that you intend to go to law school because this may help your advisor direct you to courses and events that may be beneficial to someone intending to go to law school. Regardless of the major that you choose, or the school or college that you eventually become a part of, you are encouraged to continue to seek advice and assistance available through the pre-law advisor.

The mission of the Prelaw Advising Office is to provide timely and accurate advice to students considering application to colleges of law. For those students who elect to apply to law school, the office will work with students to select the most appropriate schools for application and subsequently to maximize the student's chances for admission into the college of their choice. The Pre-Law Advising Office believes that every student should have access to the best possible information which will allow them to make intelligent decisions during the application process. For more detailed information about the pre-law program available to University of Georgia students, see: http://prelaw.uga.edu. Because students may choose any major or program of study, it is important to be aware that the Pre-Law Advising Office has confidence in the knowledge of the University of Georgia prelaw liaisons in the schools and colleges across campus:

The College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences pre-law program provides a method for undergraduate students to prepare for law school while earning a degree in an existing field of agricultural and environmental science. In this manner, students can major in a relevant career-oriented scientific discipline while perfecting learning skills that will assist them in their advanced degree program.

KENT BARNETT

Kent Barnett, an assistant professor in the School of Law, says the ideal student is not only professional and prepared but also curious, kind and “always ready to laugh.”

“I teach contracts, consumer law and administrative law. I don’t have a favorite, but I like each for a different reason. Contracts is great because I teach first-year students. I have the privilege of introducing them to the legal profession, and I get to know them during their entire time at the law school. Consumer law is fun because students gain a much better understanding of the regulatory apparatuses that influence things that they encounter routinely—for instance, advertising, car sales, mortgages, door-to-door sales, payday lending, credit reports, telemarketing and email spam. And administrative law is deeply interesting because, at its core, it’s all about power—how government must act and who in government can act.”

JEBRIL REEVES

"The law school application process for me, was difficult but very manageable. I self-studied and took the LSAT twice.  Both times, I achieved a great score. Studying for the LSAT was very time-consuming, but I knew that I would have to make sacrifices if I wanted to do well on the test. From there, applying and trying to find the right school was much easier, especially with the help of the Pre-Law Program at UGA which steered me in the right direction.  Ms. Clutter helped me to not only figure out how to choose the best applicant schools, but she also made recommendations and critiques of my personal statement. With the awesome support of the UGA advisors, faculty, family and friends, the long and difficult process of applying to law schools ended with me making the decision to attend Duke University for law school."

Psychology http://bulletin.uga.edu/MajorsGeneral.aspx?MajorId=132 Psychology

Psychology is an academic and applied discipline that involves the scientific study of behavior and mental processes.

The Psychology major at the University of Georgia is one of the most popular on campus, providing opportunities to study a wide range of issues including but not limited to clinical behavior problems, child development, self-esteem, sensation & perception, memory, workplace violence, prejudice, anxiety disorders, and even cognition in primates.  The Department strongly encourages undergraduate exposure to research, a distinctive feature of UGA’s program.  Students may sign up to participate in a number of active psychology experiments for academic credit.

Many students pursue graduate study to prepare for careers in clinical practice, counseling and therapy, psychiatry, academia, and research.  Opportunities with a bachelor’s degree include jobs in industry, mental health, government, human resources, and other organizational settings.

MADISON MIRACLE

As a future doctor, Madison Miracle believes that medicine can be used as an agent of change, and she’s already put that belief into practice through volunteer work and study abroad. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg for the senior majoring in biology and psychology.

“I have been able to take part in the diversity of opportunities for involvement in the UGA and Athens communities. Setting foot onto campus freshman year, I was excited for all the possibilities that lay before me in my next few years. I saw so many organizations that I wanted to join and things to take part in, and I am thankful for this place that has allowed me to do just that.”

Public Relations is the communication of value, services, product, or mission of an organization to the public as well as eliciting feedback from the public.  It exists in several broad areas including special events planning, media relations, public speaking, fundraising, programming, research, and writing/editing.

The PR major at the University of Georgia is designed to train students as analysts, creative thinkers, writers, planners, and policy makers in public relations and related fields for the 21st century.  Students take courses in communications, campaigning, graphics, news writing & reporting, marketing, and others, with over 70% of faculty bringing professional experience to their teaching and research.

Internships are considered essential to a student’s total educational experience and greatly enhance job potential upon graduation in entry-level marketing, communications, corporate relations, public opinion research, nonprofit and education fundraising, political campaigning, lobbying, and other mediated persuasion careers.

''No question about it—Public Relations Research Methods is my favorite class, hands down.  I love the class not only because I love research but also because of the very visible transformation you see in the students throughout the semester.  They come into the class quite nervous about what is to come and sure that they will never use research in the real world, but through the class we break down these barriers—I think my excitement for the topic is catching.  I hope they see the way to be successful is to make success for yourself.''

''I have always enjoyed the areas of real estate and urban economics because it is easy to see how they are reflected in our everyday world.  For example, when people sell their house, does the type of agent they choose to list their property with potentially impact its price and selling time?  Or, does the price of a property in a new development reflect the risks associated with such a development?  The way people finance their homes and the way these loans are bundled is very important.  Real estate as a field is interdisciplinary with a wide range of topics that can be introduced in the classroom and in my research.''

A growing number of real estate firms transact a significant portion of their business through international channels.  Even those conducting business strictly in the U.S. have to compete with foreign markets.  As a result, real estate firms that take advantage of selection, acquisition (lease or purchase), and disposition of international property have a competitive edge.

UGA has designed its Real Estate and International Business co-major to assist students in developing an in-depth understanding of the international real estate business.  Students take courses in real estate development, valuation, international business environments, finance, investments, legal transactions, and others.  Students must also satisfy an international immersion requirement such as a study abroad program, internship, or additional foreign languages.  (Refer to the Pre-Business major for information on applying.)

Career opportunities include international real estate sales, leasing, appraising, management, lease negotiation, financial analysis, or as right-of-way agents for international real estate project development.

Romance Languages are the study of literature, language, culture, and linguistics of certain areas of the world to develop language and cultural proficiency. 

The major in Romance Languages at UGA provides expertise extending from the Middle Ages through current literary and cultural trends.  Students tailor their coursework to one of four specializations: 1) French or Spanish with a minor language in French or Spanish; 2) Italian or Portuguese with a minor language in French or Spanish; 3) French or Spanish with a minor language in Italian or Portuguese; or 4) Ibero-American Comparative Studies (i.e. Western nations that were formerly colonies of Spain or Portugal).

Undergraduates frequently combine language study with other majors such as education, business, journalism, medicine, and the sciences, but proficiency in two foreign languages helps find employment in the public and private sectors or as a foundation for graduate school.

“History has always been a passion of mine. To me, it is very interesting to examine the goals and pursuits of the societies around the world that came before us.  History is so much more than memorizing dates, events and names of famous people.  I hope to teach history in a way that my students view as relevant to them and in a way that makes them enjoy learning about history and yearning to discover more about the past.  The Social Studies Education program is full of passionate individuals who want to provide students with a great experience.  While in the program, you are placed within a cohort of 25 students, allowing you to the chance to individually meet and work with staff and students.  I am proud to be a part of the Social Studies Education program.”

Trisha Reeves, Associate Professor in the School of Social Work, uses the classroom experience to demonstrate how knowledge derived from research informs human behavior.

''Social work recognizes the inextricable link between individuals and their environment.  I find human behavior endlessly fascinating, largely because of my inherently curious nature about people and the world around me.  I want my students to be inspired to think about social work from different perspectives—service, social justice, dignity and worth of the person, importance of human relationships, integrity, and competence.''

The Sociology major at the University of Georgia provides a firm foundation of the sociological perspective.

The curriculum references three central aspects: 1) the preeminence of social structures and their influence at the micro- and macro-level; 2) the role of logic and the scientific method in the acquisition of knowledge; and 3) the enduring link between individual experience and larger social processes.  Students pose sociological questions and bring data to bear on them in courses that underscore the importance of race, class, gender, and culture. 

Students who intend to pursue graduate studies in the social sciences, law, or business are encouraged to pursue research in the department.  Other employment opportunities are available in government, business, or other areas that utilize written and oral communication skills.

William Finlay, Professor of Sociology at the University of Georgia, thinks of his discipline as a toolkit to explain human behavior.

''I enjoy the diversity and sheer range of human behaviors and institutions that one can examine and explain as a sociologist.

CIERRA MATTHEWS

“I chose this program because I believe my purpose in life is to give back to those individuals who give us so much. Individuals with disabilities are unique and intriguing individuals, and bring joy to my heart. Within this program, I have the opportunity to meet so many individuals who have taught me patience, perseverance and versatility. What I love most about this program is being able to gain first hand experiences within the classroom and being able to work with all grade levels.”

ALEX VAN DYKE

"Being six feet tall I was often asked if I played basketball or volleyball.  I always felt discouraged answering, no. I wanted to play sports, but complications prevented me from passing a physical. It seemed that the only place for me was on the sidelines, but I didn’t settle for that.  I found myself in leadership positions, planning trips, and managing budgets and events as I was entering high school. I learned that I was better at the behind the scenes execution of sporting events, than being a physical part of the team experience. That knack for planning is why I chose Sport Management as my major; a program where I combine my passions with my strengths.”

JAYLON THOMPSON

Jaylon Thompson, a senior majoring in digital and broadcast journalism, is living out his dream of earning his degree from the Grady College. His hard work paid off with the opportunity to cover the Olympics in Rio. His goal is to inspire others to follow their dreams.

"Once I stepped on campus, I knew I wanted to make a difference. My biggest inspiration came from my grandmother, who passed away when I was in high school. She would always tell me to “work hard and always do what you can to help others.”  It was at this moment, I knew my goal was to be bigger than a sports journalist, it was to also uplift others as well. So, I joined the Red & Black newspaper and wrote sports stories on the soccer, men’s basketball and women’s softball teams that resonated with the audience. Then, I entered the Grady Sports Media program.  It was here where my journalism career took off. I met professors Vicki Michaelis and Welch Suggs who taught me everything I know — from writing game stories to operating digital platforms. They believed in me and helped me get internships with the Houston Chronicle and the Sports Journalism Institute my junior year. It was here that I honed my skills and started taking on more leadership opportunities."

Statistics http://bulletin.uga.edu/MajorsGeneral.aspx?MajorId=149 Statistics

As one of the most active research universities in the nation, the University of Georgia relies heavily on statistics, data, and data collection through surveys and experimentation.

The Statistics major at UGA prepares students for a statistical career by developing analytical, research, and presentation skills; mastering new and classic statistical ideas; and developing innovative statistical analysis and sampling techniques through problem solving and new technologies.  Students tailor their coursework toward one of two areas of specialization:     1) Data Analysis - preparation for a statistical career; or 2) Mathematical Statistics – preparation for graduate school or further training.

Careers exist in business and industry (e.g. information technology, finance, marketing, quality control); health and medicine (e.g. pharmaceuticals, biotech, public health, medical research); and government (e.g. the Environmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Census Bureau, and U.S. Department of Agriculture) with job titles such as insurance actuaries, data analysts, and statistical consultants.

Studio Art Core & Minor http://art.uga.edu/undergraduate-areas Studio Art Core & Minor

The Studio Art Core serves as the backbone of the Studio Art BFA and Interdisciplinary Art & Design AB degrees. Built upon core principles necessary for all studio art practices, it creates a shared culture of dialogue and interdisciplinary practice across all areas and studio practices within the School.

The core includes a year-long survey of art history, three introductory-level studio foundation courses, an intermediate course on the development of ideas and practice, and two upper-level courses in interdisciplinary thematic studio and professional practices.

The first-year Studio Foundation is an intensive, practice-based experience that establishes and develops a common visual vocabulary involving basic perceptual, conceptual, and intuitive skill, utilizing models from contemporary and modern art history. The program promotes imaginative critical thinking skills and self-discipline. Students engage in creative problem solving through conventional and unconventional media and techniques associated with a range of studio activity, and advance an understanding of and sensitivity towards the non-verbal language of art and design. Through a variety of experiences from rigorous classroom critiques and discussion, seminars, visiting artist lectures and exhibitions, first-year students are introduced to new ideas and practices and develop a critical acumen that prepares them for advanced study. Students become familiar with the major achievements in the history of art through lectures as well as studio activities.

 

AB in Interdisciplinary Art & Design

The AB in  program (formerly the AB in Studio Art) exposed to a variety of media and techniques across the studio art disciplines, yet have the flexibility to build a more interdisciplinary degree program with more elective coursework outside of Art.

More information about Art & Design can be found on it Major Page or feel free to check out the Art schools website. 

 

Minor in Studio Art

The minor in Studio Art provides students with the opportunity to integrate creative and artistic practice with other academic or research pursuits. Students selecting the minor in Studio Art are not necessarily pursuing careers as practicing professional artists or designers; rather they are seeking a unique program of study where the visual arts and creativity provide desirable skills. 

A minor in Studio Art requires 24 credit hours (nine hours of prerequisite foundations coursework + 15 hours of minor studio courses at the 3000-level or above).

Theatre http://bulletin.uga.edu/MajorsGeneral.aspx?MajorId=152 Theatre

The A.B. in Theatre at the University of Georgia is designed to provide an introduction to the various facets of the theatrical experience.

Students complete a core of theatre courses including acting, design, play analysis, and theatre history.  Supplemental applied drama courses provide students with actual working theatre knowledge in costuming, stagecraft, box office, and promotion.  The program produces courageous students who have a wide range of abilities, are comfortable working as a team, can think on their feet, analyze situations thoroughly, communicate effectively, and work well under pressure.  NOTE: no auditions are necessary for entrance into the theatre major, but upper-level performance electives require a juried audition.

Many graduates pursue advanced study in theatre, acting, directing, design, playwriting, business, law, telecommunications, and others.  Alumni have jobs in a wide range of fields, including acting (e.g. Wayne Knight, Kyle Chandler, and IronE ‘T-Dog’ Singleton of “Walking Dead” fame), Hollywood set dressing, stuntmen, arts administration, costume design, entertainment marketing, and visual effects.

ISAAC HOPKINS

Isaac Hopkins, an English and theatre studies major, has found a home on the stage at UGA and beyond. The young playwright has already had four of his plays published.

"Over this last Christmas, our troupe was lent an unused bank building, which we then converted to a temporary performance space for the premiere of my collaborator’s and my new musical, “258: A Musical Drama.”"

Isaac says "the one UGA experience I will always remember will be Snelling Dining Hall. Freshman year. Black coffee and chocolate fluff pie until 3 a.m. Ideas, conversations and stories with some incredible people."

Turfgrass Management is the science and culture of fine grasses used on golf courses, athletic fields, parks, schools, commercial grounds, home lawns, and other areas requiring an attractive but functional ground cover. 

The major at the University of Georgia incorporates basic and applied science principles through courses in soil hydrology and fertility, weed science, insect pest management, plant physiology and pathology, and labs with actual demonstration field plots.  Particular emphasis is placed on environmentally sound turf care strategies. 

Increasing interest in outdoor recreation as well as aesthetically appealing landscaped areas has created a demand for professional turfgrass managers - the turfgrass industry in Georgia alone is estimated at more than billlion.  Other careers include chemical lawn care and sod production; lawn maintenance and landscape firms; turfgrass seed and equipment sales and service; and irrigation design and installation.

JUANITA JOHNSON-BAILEY

Professor Juanita Johnson-Bailey, director of UGA’s Institute for Women’s Studies, believes there is much to be explored on the subject of how gender and race impact education and learning.

''It continues to fascinate me that my area of research, which examines how gender and race impact education and learning, is so central yet so under-examined.  Whether you are looking at how female philosophers of ancient Greece were routinely excluded from historical re-telling or how today's popular media miseducates the public about women, there is much to be explored–and that means that the possibilities are limitless.  I want students to see that we are living in a global community and that we have a commitment to be good citizens and lifelong learners in this expansive neighborhood.''

DREW KEIM

“I was first introduced to Spanish in high school. Learning how to read, write and speak the language was just a mere glimpse into the entirety of the culture, but this was my first experience with life outside of my rural hometown.  When I arrived to The University of Georgia, I chose the World Language Education program because it allowed me to combine my love for Spanish with another love of mine, education, thus pursuing a degree which combined my two interests.  Teaching has always been on my heart. Because of the education I have received at UGA, I will be equipped to help shape the lives of upcoming generations; therefore, having a hand in positively impacting the future.  For me, that is a remarkable existence, which would not be possible without the opportunities UGA and the College of Education offered me through courses, student organizations and field experiences.”
