College of Coastal Georgia increases academic opportunities

The College of Coastal Georgia was formerly a two-year school. However, the institution is the latest addition to the Peach State's university system. According to The Brunswick News, Randall Rozier was a student at Coastal when the school received four-year accreditation.

Instead of transferring to another university after earning his associate's degree, Rozier decided to stay and earn a bachelor's.

"We have more of a traditional core of students," Rozier told the news source. "With all the stuff we've done with academics and new buildings, it's built up the school. The atmosphere has really taken off. It's been really interesting to be a part of this transition."

Rozier is enrolled in the health informatics program, which prepares students for careers as health practitioners.

He told the media outlet that a degree from Coastal will help him get into pharmacy school because he has already had access to knowledge of medical records and vocabulary.

Medical records and health information technicians assemble patients' medical history, symptoms, examination results, diagnostic tests, treatment methods and all other healthcare provider services, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
