Core Curriculum and other Georgia Tech Requirements


Important Note:


On March 9, 2016, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia approved a revision to system-wide policies related to the Core Curriculum.

  1. Institutions in the University System of Georgia will not be required to identify or track overlay requirements related to US Perspectives, Global Perspectives, and Critical Thinking.
  2. Students will not be required to complete the overlay requirements from this point forward.
  3. Students who are scheduled to graduate in the Spring 2016 Semester and who have not completed the overlays may graduate without fulfilling this requirement.

University System of Georgia Core Curriculum Requirements

The following describe the core requirements, effective in Fall 2011 and reflecting an important change in March 2016.

The courses that can be used to satisfy the various area requirements are subject to change, and will be updated as soon as possible. Students and advisors are encouraged to check this section of the Catalog regularly to obtain the most current information.

Any courses completed that were listed in prior catalogs as satisfying the Humanities/Social Science Requirement and were completed while that edition of the Catalog was in effect may also be used to satisfy that requirement.

More information about the University System of Georgia's Core Curriculum polices is available on in the Academics & Student Affairs Handbook on the USG web site.
