TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

Students can now get a Bachelor's of Science and Economic Development at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton.

President David Bridges says it will create more opportunities for students who want to stay at ABAC instead of transferring to a four year college.

"It allows us the opportunity to allow students to get a degree in business with a minor in agriculture or a minor in forestry, a minor in writing, or communications, or vice versa," said Bridges. "They may want to get a communications degree with a minor in business.

The college currently has approximately 3,300 students enrolled. Around 1,000 are pursuing Bachelor's degrees.
