Georgia State University was founded in 1913. For more than a century, our ambitious spirit has helped us shape our students into accomplished alumni, change the face of downtown Atlanta and rise as a dynamic research university. Today our 250-plus degree programs and welcoming culture attract more than 51,000 students from more than 170 countries, every state in the nation and every county in Georgia. Diversity is a defining part of our DNA.
We’re recognized as a national leader in student success. We are changing the way our students are learning, helping them graduate faster and save millions on the pathway to their degrees. It’s no wonder The Washington Post called us a “hotbed of growth and innovation.”
