Core Curriculum Courses

plaza scene

Whether or not you are a current Georgia State student, consider spending summer 2019 downtown to get a head start on your general education core requirements. If you are enrolled in another University System of Georgia institution, the core curriculum automatically transfers to your school. Many of these general education offerings transfer to universities out of state too. Wherever you’re headed this fall, take some extra credits with you and start with a boost to your core curriculum.
