Here, your experience creates opportunity.

At Valdosta State, students take learning beyond the classroom. Here, you can participate in research or practice with faculty members as early as your first year. You'll utilize technology from the hospital room to the news room and everywhere in between to gain professional-level knowledge in your field. You can study in over 100 locations around the world, then apply your experience at home. Whatever experience you're looking for, you can find it here.
