Piedmont College in AthensAbout Piedmont

Piedmont College was founded in Demorest, Ga., in 1897 for one purpose: to provide a high-quality college education to students in northeast Georgia who otherwise could not attend college. Today Piedmont continues that mission, although students now come from across the state and around the world for an affordable education that is second to none.

The Athens campus is designed for students who want to live in a big-college town but reap the benefits a small college offers. Piedmont in Athens offers four-year programs in a variety of career-oriented majors, as well as graduate programs in Education and  Business. 

PC-Athens has served more than 6,000 students since opening in 1995. Classes are scheduled during the day and night, making it easy for traditional students or working adults to attend. Students also enjoy the personal atmosphere at PC-Athens, which provides face-to-face instruction from professors. 

The student/faculty ratio is 14 to 1, and most professors hold a doctorate or the terminal degree in their field. Piedmont is known for the individual attention that students receive and the one-on-one instruction provided by dedicated professors whose first commitment is to your education.
