Young Harris College and North Georgia Technical College are working together to bring more coursework to both students at both institutions.

Young Harris College President Cathy Cox signed an agreement with North Georgia Tech President Steve Dougherty last week that will bring students at both schools more classes in business, information technology, English, math, psychology and science.

The partnership will allow technical students to continue their education with more flexibility at Young Harris, a North Georgia Tech news release said.

“This is a huge opportunity for our students and for the community,” Dougherty said.

Young Harris College is a private liberal arts institution historically affiliated with The United Methodist Church.

Late last year, Young Harris was awarded four-year status when it earned approval from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to begin offering bachelor’s degrees this fall.

North Georgia Tech is a public two-year technical college. Its mission is to provide quality technical education, adult education, continuing education and business and industry training.
