Appalachian Studies Center at UNG

Folklife Sponsor

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.

As Georgia's official center for the study of Appalachia as designated by the state's General Assembly in 2005, the center's mission is to educate students about southern Appalachia's art, history, music and nature through community service learning, undergraduate research and creative activities.
