The basic course of study required of all students seeking a bachelor's
degree at Augusta State University is referred to as the "core." The core
curriculum is detailed in the university catalog but a brief overview is
presented here. In addition to 18 credit hours hours from Area F (major specific) and the other courses required
to satisfy the major, students under the semester catalog must take 42 credit hours from Areas A-E.
(Note: "Science Track" majors include Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics.)
You should become familiar with the classes required for the major(s) in your department by

In addition to the 42 hours in core Areas A-E, there are
18 more hours to be satisfied for Area F as specified by each major. The courses that make up
Area F are listed in the catalog for each major program.
This overview of the core curriculum is general in nature.
Each program's specific requirements is
detailed in the university catalog.
It is important to remember that a course taken to satisfy one core
area may not also satisfy another area's requirements.
Courses used from the above list to satisfy
CPC deficiencies do NOT
count toward the core requirements
(see CPC Deficiencies). Additional
coursework must be selected to satisfy core requirements.
Associate's Degrees may have different requirements. Consult the
catalog and the department offering that degree.
TRANSFER STUDENTS: review the transfer credit evaluation for courses
which may have already satisfied some core requirements, particularly
in AREA B&C (Humanities).
