ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two South Georgia colleges are working to fill the gap between the number of graduates in computer sciences and the number of jobs in that field.
Darton and Georgia Southwestern signed an agreement to make it easier for graduates of Darton's computer programs to enroll at GSW.
Some Darton classes will also transfer and count toward a degree in Business and Computer Science.
This isn't the first co-operative program between the two schools to benefit students and the region where they live.
Dr. Kendall Blanchard, the President of Georgia Southwestern University said, "we've worked very hard to develop relationships with the two year schools. Develop programs like this that give the students a leg up."
Darton College's Interim Dean of Science and Mathematics Frank Malinowski said that having more computer science graduates will, "encourage more businesses to relocate here, to open up secondary shops in this area."
The agreement between the two schools is effective immediately.
