College offers an undergraduate education that is committed
to academic excellence, grounded in the liberal arts tradition,
and informed by the Christian faith. The College's heritage
as a Georgia Baptist institution produces a concern for
individuals that motivates our community to nurture and
develop the whole student in a caring, Christian environment.
Faculty members serve as teacher-scholars promoting intellectual
inquiry that develops the mind and spirit. Students study
the traditional liberal arts and sciences, and selected
professional and pre-professional programs, at the campus
in Mount Vernon and designated external locations. Activities
both inside and outside the classroom afford students opportunities
for intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth
that prepare them for meaningful service to their local,
regional, and global communities.
Division of External Programs seeks to help the College
meet its mission through the provision of an equally effective
academic program at sites that are distant to the Mount
Vernon campus. The Division of External Programs provides
a community of intellectual inquiry and learning under Christian
sponsorship to students unable to commute to the Mount Vernon
Campus for such an educational experience. Furthermore,
the Division of External Programs develops student maturation
in knowledge, values and citizenship through baccalaureate
degrees and the Associate of Arts degree, and through the
provision of counseling and career guidance as well as to
assist students to learn.
External Programs is a community service program intended
to reach into the surrounding counties by delivering accredited
college instruction to constituents unable to be serviced
by Brewton-Parker's Mount Vernon campus because of work,
distance, or other life situations.
College will be a distinctive community of learners committed
to upholding strong academic standards where liberal arts
education and every area of the college are informed by
the Christian faith in a nurturing Christian environment.
External Program operates under the direction and oversight
of the Provost as it delivers academic programs established
by the faculty of Brewton-Parker College and approved by
the Board of Trustees. The Dean for
External Programs is the administrator of the program and
reports directly to the Vice President for Enrollment Management. The Associate Director
of External Programs provides administrative assistance
to the Dean for External Programs. The
Campus Directors (Liberty County, Newnan and Norman Park) administer
the programs at their respective locations and report directly
to the Dean for External Programs. All online and and Mount Vernon evening classes also fall under the adminstration of the Dean for External Programs.
College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate's
and bachelor's degrees. Brewton-Parker is also an accredited
member of the National Association of Schools of Music.
