New Georgian programs for September 2023

Future Georgian students will find seven innovative and exciting new programs available for September 2023 that will get them job-ready to meet the needs of local employers.

The new College Foundations certificate program is the first of its kind in the province and allows students to explore a variety of program options to develop the strengths and skills they need to prepare for employment or further their studies. It will be offered at the Barrie and Owen Sound campuses. In addition to being offered full-time, this program will also be offered part-time and/or online.

We’re continuing to develop new programs that offer students both the applied skills and theoretical knowledge needed to start or accelerate their careers . It’s important to provide our students with a competitive advantage so when they graduate they’re ready to hit the ground running in a career that meets community, social and labour needs.
