Students entering Darton State College for transfer programs are assured that the first
two years of study will apply toward virtually any field of study that may be chosen.
Adoption of a six-area Core Curriculum by the University System of Georgia was
implemented beginning with the Fall Semester, 1998. This new core has enhanced
transferability across the University System. The six areas of the new Core Curriculum are:
A--Basic Skills (9 hours); B--Institutional Options (4 hours); C--Humanities/Fine Arts (6
hours); D--Science, Mathematics, and Technology (11 hours); E--Social Sciences (12
hours); and F-Courses Related to the Program of Study (18 hours). There will be a total of
60 semester hours of credit in the core, and the 42 semester credit hours of Areas A-E may
apply to virtually any field of study. On the following pages are detailed programs of study
specifically offered at this College. However, preparation for advanced study in any other
subject area may be begun with confidence at Darton State College. Students who intend
to pursue a four-year degree but are uncertain of the program they wish to follow should
take the General Studies Program until they choose a major.

1. Physical education requirements are to be over and above the Core Curriculum
requirements of 60 hours.
2. Orientation requirements are to be over and above the Core Curriculum
requirements of 60 hours.
3. Proficiency exemption examination in any of the Core Curriculum courses, when
successfully passed at a home institution, will be honored by the receiving institution
and credit accorded.
4. Nothing in this core should be construed to mean that any specific courses must be
required. Rather, the intent of this Core Curriculum is that demonstrated achievement
in the core area is determined by the institution where the core, or the fractional part
thereof, is taken.
5 Each institution is to determine whether its own students satisfy the core
requirements. This determination shall then be honored by all other institutions as
satisfying their requirements as well, if the core is completed. If only a fractional part
