Georgia

Georgia is home to many major industries, especially textiles, agriculture and timber. While many of the jobs that come from the industries do not require a formal education, that has not stopped the state from focusing on promoting education within the state. With well recognized schools such as Georgia State University and University of Georgia there are plenty of schools at home for students from around the country and world. That doesn’t mean students in Georgia don’t want options though. Fortunately, plenty of colleges throughout the country offer online degree programs, and some in the state even offer programs that provide students with access to laptops. Your options are varied, so don’t settle in on a college until you learn more about what is out there.
