Valdosta - A South Georgia college is hoping to recruit more students with new degree programs.

Valdosta Technical College kicked off its "Invent Yourself" campaign Tuesday. They're introducing more than 10 new programs, including fire science, criminal justice, banking and finance and early childhood education.

All of the degrees can be earned in two years or less. "A couple of years ago when I started making commercials for the college, I think we said 70 programs in two years of less, now we say 85 plus because it keeps growing so fast," said Ruby Riesinger.

Most of the new programs will be available when fall quarter starts in September, with the exception of criminal justice, which won't be offered until winter quarter.
