The SLA’s multi-disciplinary approach to learning provides lots of options for exploring interests in history, politics, literature, psychology and criminal justice. GGC faculty have a passion for helping students create special capstone experiences, real-world internships and service projects that put academic theories to practice.

Carla Williams ‘17 & Micaih Ruiz ‘17

GGC graduates Carla Williams and Micaih Ruiz have a lot in common. Both political science majors, the women enrolled at Georgia Gwinnett later in life. Their children are of similar ages. Both are the first members of their families to earn degrees and both were admitted to GGC as presidential exceptions, a program for students who might not be admitted elsewhere. Both women were admitted after appealing their initial denial and they worked tremendously hard to maximize this second chance. “GGC taught me to find value in myself, and my professors helped me understand what I wanted for my life,” says Micaih. “I know there are others out there who are scared and who have poor grades. If I can do it, they can too,” advises Carla.
