Savannah State University is the oldest institution of higher learning in the city and the oldest public HBCU in Georgia. Its location—atop a salt water estuary—has made it nationally recognized as a top producer of marine science degrees and is an important research resource for the coastal area, in a variety of fields. Students also have their choice of 29 other undergraduate degrees across four colleges: Business Administration, Education, Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, and Sciences and Technology. The Center for Student Success and Retention provides services and resources to help students achieve academic success, including academic advising and counseling, tutoring, and testing services. For those looking to catch up or get a jump start on their curriculums, SSU’s nine-week mini-mester courses let students stay on track with their credits, providing the same courses as during a full semester but in an accelerated format (online core requirement courses are always available). The International Education Center helps convert students into global citizens, and it coordinates study abroad in nine different countries. SSU is also the first institution in the state of Georgia to offer a homeland security degree program.
