Nature of Work
The associate of science degree program in Consumer Economics is a transferable program of study developed in collaboration with the College of Family and Consumer Sciences at The University of Georgia. The program includes general education courses that satisfy core curriculum requirements established by the University, as well as Consumer Economics major courses that satisfy requirements toward a bachelor of science degree in Consumer Economics at the University.
The Consumer Economics major at the University prepares students to understand how consumers make choices in their daily lives. Students learn how fraud and deception, products of varying quality, and inadequate information affect consumer decisions. Graduates of the program receive the associate of science degree in Consumer Economics from Athens Technical College. They are then eligible to apply for admission as a junior to the bachelor of science degree program in Consumer Economics at the University. Graduates must meet the transfer admissions requires at the time they submit their application for admission to the University. Information on the transfer admission requirements are available on the University of Georgia website.
