MOUNT VERNON, Ga. — Brewton-Parker College is excited to announce the addition of several new majors to its academic offerings. The new degrees will meet the demands of today's job market and provide students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their chosen careers. Beginning in the Fall 2023 semester are majors in Secondary Chemistry Education, Secondary English Education, Special Education, Music Education, and concentrations in Forensic Science and Pre-Athletic Training. Additionally, majors in Marketing and Sport Management will be available starting in Spring 2024.

Students desiring to earn a degree in any of the new education degrees will gain practical experience and develop the required skills to excel in the classroom. The Secondary Chemistry and Secondary English majors will prepare students to become certified high school teachers in their respective subjects, with coursework in advanced topics and teaching methods.

Music Education will prepare students to become certified K-12 teachers while gaining the necessary pedagogical knowledge to teach music effectively.

Brewton-Parker understands the increasing demand for healthcare professionals, thus adding concentrations in Pre-Physical Therapy and Pre-Athletic Training that will provide students with a strong foundation in anatomy, physiology, and therapeutic techniques, preparing them for future graduate studies or careers in the healthcare field.

Beginning with the Spring 2024 semester, the new Marketing degree will give students a solid foundation to succeed in the fast-paced marketing and advertising world. Students will study basic marketing principles, consumer behavior, and digital marketing, and learn how to conduct market research. The increased popularity of athletics as careers and not just extracurriculars gave rise to the major in Sport Management. The program will provide students with business operations skills, as well as analytical training skills, all directed specifically toward the sports industry.

"We are thrilled to offer these new majors to our students," said Dr. Steve Echols, president of Brewton-Parker College.
