Young Harris College is an educational adventure that helps answer the question, “What if?” This is especially true in a division full of hypotheses, experiments and discovery. An understanding of mathematics and the sciences is an indispensable part of a sound education and our faculty is ready to challenge you over the next four years.
At YHC, learning happens everywhere—from the classroom to the lab to the field.
It happens at the Beekeeping Institute and through the YHC Hemlock Project, both which provide unique learning experiences for students, faculty and the region. It happens at the 40-foot-dome Rollins Planetarium, which features a state-of-the-art GOTO Chronos Space Simulator star projector, as well as at the YHC observatory which features a Schmidt Cassegrain telescope housed in a 15-foot dome just a few minutes drive from campus. Our facilities are well-tailored to nearly every scientific interest.
Many of our courses combine traditional laboratory experiences with field experiences so you can conduct and present significant research as an undergraduate. You’ll build a strong base of expertise and apply your newfound knowledge to research that changes lives or challenges long-held ideas.
Graduates with knowledge and aptitude for the natural sciences are in demand. YHC alumni have been accepted into prestigious graduate programs and found successful careers in medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, ecology, research, pharmacology, astronomy, physics and education.
