Georgia State University

      public, coeducational institution of higher learning in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S. It is part of the University System of Georgia. The university consists of six colleges, including colleges of arts and sciences, business, education, health and human services, and law and the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies. In addition to undergraduate studies, Georgia State offers master's and doctoral degree programs in a range of areas, as well as a professional degree in law.

      The university began in 1913 as the Georgia Institute of Technology Evening School of Commerce. By the 1930s the school was largely independent of, though still officially tied to, Georgia Institute of Technology. The school's affiliation was changed in 1947, and it became the Atlanta Division of the University of Georgia (Georgia, University of). It became the Georgia State College of Business Administration, a separate public institution, in 1955. The school's expanding curriculum belied this narrow definition, however, and in 1961 the name was changed to Georgia State College; university standing was achieved in 1969, and the College of Law opened in 1982.
