Core Area C: Humanities, Fine Arts, and Ethics

Core Area C is satisfied by completion of 6 semester hours in courses that carry the HUM (Humanities) attribute. Fine Arts and some ethics related courses are included under Humanities at Georgia Tech. Courses that carry both the HUM and ETHS attribute can serve both purposes.

Students completing their degree requirements under catalog year 2012-2013 forward are required to complete the new US Perspectives Overlay as part of the Core Curriculum. These students must also complete 3 credit hours in at least one Global themed course to fulfill the new Global Perspectives Overlay requirement in the Core Curriculum. Some Humanities courses also carry the Global Perspectives attribute. These courses may be used to satisfy both HUM and GP areas (see chart below).

Note:

  1. Any courses completed that were listed in prior catalogs as satisfying the humanities or ethics requirement and were completed while that catalog was in effect may also be used to satisfy this requirement.
  2. Humanities credit is awarded for Modern Languages 1001 classes upon successful completion of the corresponding 1002 classes. Humanities credit is awarded for SPAN 1101 only upon the successful completion of SPAN 1102. In some instances, students may complete a Modern Languages course at 1001 and then be placed at the second-semester level and complete the 2001 level course. Therefore, the sequence that will warrant HUM credit for Modern Languages courses may be either the 1001-1002 or the 1001-2001 sequence.
  3. Undergraduate Research courses numbered 2698, 2699, 4698, and 4699 cannot be used to fulfill requirements for humanities.
  4. Additional information on Music courses: Students are permitted to earn 4 hours of humanities credit for participation in ensembles.
  5. Humanities Credit for Ensemble Participation
    Students are permitted to earn 4 hours of humanities credit for participating in ensembles in the School of Music, provided the selection and concentration criteria are satisfied. Specifically, the selection must satisfy Criterion 1, and the concentration must satisfy Criterion 2 or Criterion 3.
    1. Criterion 1-The ensemble is chosen from the following list: Percussion Ensemble, Orchestra, Chorale, Concert Band, Jazz Ensemble, Woodwind Ensemble (Symphonic Band), Vocal Ensemble, and Men's Glee Club.
    2. Criterion 2-The student earns at least four credits in one of the ensembles chosen from the list in Criterion 1.
    3. Criterion 3-The student earns at least four credits in a combination of Woodwind Ensemble (Symphonic Band) and Concert Band.
  6. Transfer Students:

    Please be aware that when you see courses on your GT record that are listed with an "X" in the number (ECON 3XXX or JAPN 10X2, for example) it means that these are transfer courses and although they were not equated exactly with a GT course, they may have been accepted to meet a Core area such as Humanities and Social Science.

    If you review your records in DegreeWorks, you will be able to see how your transfer credit applies to your GT degree program. Refer to your academic advisor for more information.
