Newest articulation agreement provides students a path to a master’s degree in five years

Georgia Highlands College (GHC) and Piedmont University have partnered to establish a pathway for students to earn an associate, bachelor’s and master’s in just five years between the two colleges.

The partnership bridges three degree programs with a focus on communication sciences and disorders.

The articulation agreement establishes a plan where a student at GHC who completes an Associate of Science in Middle Grades Education (STEM) may transfer to Piedmont University to complete a bachelor’s degree in communication sciences and move into the graduate program in speech-language pathology.


Additionally, a virtual information session is planned for April 13 at 12:30PM where students will learn more from GHC and Piedmont University about how to complete the full pathway to a master’s degree in five years.
