The Appalachian Studies Center at the University of North Georgia educates students about southern Appalachia's art, history, music, and nature through community service learning, undergraduate research and creative activities.

The University of North Georgia is also the first university in the state to offer a minor in Appalachian Studies. This multidisciplinary minor provides students with an understanding of the culture, economy, history, natural resources, and politics of Appalachia and how these concepts impact and influence contemporary Appalachian communities.
