Grambling State University Hopes to Offer New Degree Program in Cloud Computing

Historically Black Grambling State University in Louisiana has received approval from the University of Louisiana System board of supervisors to develop a proposal to offer the state’s first bachelor’s degree in cloud computing. Once the plan is developed, the university would need a second approval to offer the new degree program. If all goes as planned, the new major could begin to enroll students as early as next fall.

“Our many professors in technology-related disciplines are continuing our long legacy of educating students on the cutting edge,” said the university’s interim provost, Connie Walton. “From computer science and cybersecurity to this proposed new degree, their work in research and industry are helping grow educational quality and internships for our students.”

“We know Louisiana students are well-positioned to fill today’s market needs,” said Grambling State University President Rick Gallot. “We, at Grambling State, are grateful for the continued support of our partners in government and industry who help us continue to drive innovation.”
