Mercer offers an evening and weekend continuing education program geared toward adults held at off-campus centers around the state of Georgia. 3. Our branch campus in Atlanta offers upper division undergraduate courses leading to a BBA in business. 4. Our Georgia Baptist College of Nursing offers undergraduate nursing degrees on the Atlanta Campus. Activities, housing options, and athletic program availability vary by program.
