We are delighted you are considering East Mississippi Community College for your post-secondary or workforce development needs.
EMCC was established in 1927 and emerged out of the historic Kemper County Agricultural High School in Scooba, Mississippi. As part of the Mississippi Community College system, East Mississippi was specifically designed to serve the people of Clay, Kemper, Lauderdale, Lowndes, Noxubee, and Oktibbeha counties in east central Mississippi. In the mid-1960s, the Golden Triangle Campus was established to provide university-parallel academic tracks as well as industry-relevant career-technical pathways.
From its humble beginning as an agricultural high school, EMCC has always been committed to partnering with local industry to ensure our state develops the highly skilled and knowledgeable workforce required to succeed in today’s business climate. As Mississippi continues to establish itself as a national leader in industrial and high-tech economic development, the need for STEM specialized professions increases. To that end, EMCC is working diligently to connect students with Mississippi businesses and encourage them to explore the myriad of career opportunities available in STEM fields.
