Dean’s Welcome

Ken Walsh
Earn a San Diego State University U.S. Bachelor’s Degree in Tbilisi, Georgia

As founding Dean of SDSU Georgia, I am very honored and pleased to oversee the SDSU Georgia program offering students in Tbilisi, Georgia the opportunity to earn a nationally and professionally accredited, and internationally recognized high quality U.S. bachelor’s degree in the heart of the Caucasus. In collaboration with GTU, ISU, and TSU, we are offering programs that provide an American-style college education to those who qualify. Our programs are designed to prepare students to excel in these fields, secure jobs offering a competitive wage, and build, expand, and enhance Georgian and regional competitiveness. Our classrooms, engineering and science laboratories, and computer workstations have been designed to meet the same criteria and provide the same technologies that are used at SDSU in the United States.

Courses will be taught by SDSU faculty as well as Georgian and international faculty who meet SDSU’s standards for academic excellence and the standards of U.S. professional accreditors. Students admitted to an SDSU Georgia program are SDSU students in the same way as SDSU students in San Diego. SDSU Georgia students may take advantage (subject to payment of supplemental fees) of opportunities to travel to San Diego to enroll in and complete a semester or two in California. We look forward to working with you to help create a high quality, competitive 21st century Georgian workforce and economy. Welcome to SDSU Georgia!
