SWGTC adds two groundbreaking programs

Posted: Updated:

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Southwest Georgia Tech in Thomasville will offer two groundbreaking new programs this fall.

The college is introducing Veterinary and Land, Forest, and Wildlife Management Technology Programs. Students in both programs will participate in hands on activities in the new Heath Sciences building.

The Land Tech program was custom created to meet the needs of local farmers and plantation owners. School officials say no student will be left behind. "Job placement. They can expect that. That's one thing, our mission for our college is workforce development so we will see when they graduate they will have employment," said V.P. of Academic Affairs Annie McElroy.

In the new building, Vet Tech students will have the opportunity to watch and participate in live procedures.

The Health Sciences building will also house a virtual hospital where students can learn and work under real world conditions.
