Franklin College Academic Requirements

In addition to completing the University of Georgia Core Curriculum and University-wide degree requirements, recipients of degrees from the Franklin College of Arts & Sciences are expected to satisfy each of the following requirements.

Any courses used to fulfill major requirements, general electives, or the Core Curriculum may simultaneously satisfy Franklin College requirements.

All courses must be at least 3 hours and taught at the undergraduate level (1000-5999). Except for Multicultural selections, no course may be used to satisfy more than one Franklin College requirement.
