GHC is now adding new areas of study including Building Information Modeling Management, Healthcare Management, and FinTech. Film production was added in 2020 and continues through 2022.

Earning a bachelor’s degree is more accessible than ever at Georgia Highlands as the programs offered continue to expand. New study streams available include Building Information Modeling Management, Healthcare Management, and Financial Technology. Film Production is an ongoing program that was added to the GHC pathways in 2020.

The Building Information Modeling Management program is best suited for students looking to become the future of construction and engineering. Jason Christian, acting dean of the School of STEM, explained that the degree has no admission requirements. “Anyone interested in pursuing BIMM as a degree option should contact an advisor and get started,” Christian said.

Students interested in BIMM can find information about the program, including a video created by BIMM Professor Maria Holt, at BIMM.highlands.edu. Additionally, resources on the website provide a better understanding of BIMM and explain how students can use the degree.

It is planned to organize an information session for interested students on March 30, April 11, April 21th and May 10, at 5 p.m. on Zoom. The Zoom link for the sessions will be located on the BIMM website.

The Film Production course is aimed at students who are interested in everything related to cinema. Students can learn about screenwriting, cinematography, film analysis and more.

In an interview broadcast on GHConline TVfilm students Justin Ford and Haley Harding both explained how GHC has impacted them by providing them with knowledge and experience in the field of cinema.

Ford said that in his classes he learned to dissect, analyze and shoot films. This degree program also teaches students about independent filmmaking.

Hardin said that you have to wear many different hats in independent cinema. She went on to explain that GHC film students learn to prepare to create their own films if they choose.

After students complete their film courses at GHC, there is a paid internship program with the Georgia Film Academy that students can apply for. Taking advantage of this internship program could open the door to many different opportunities to advance in the professional field.

The Healthcare Management program is a new option open to students wishing to pursue a career in healthcare. It provides students with the knowledge and skills needed within the healthcare industry.

By earning a bachelor’s degree in healthcare management, students could find careers in many different fields such as hospital administration, clinic administration, health information management, nursing management , rehabilitation administration, general management, marketing, human resources and finance.

Other students may find their interest piqued by a Bachelor in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. Logistics includes activities within the boundaries of an organization. Supply chains are linked to networks of multiple companies that work together to produce a product to market.
