Basic Core Courses

Note: Areas 1-6 correspond to the categories in Colorado's gtPathways. Although UNC has decided to treat History as a distinct area, the fact that History is classified as a required Social and Behavioral Sciences course in gtPathways means that the requirements for Areas 3-5 above correspond exactly to the requirements in gtPathways for courses in Arts and Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences. Note that Basic Core Courses bearing the designation "gtP" have all been approved for inclusion in gtPathways. Basic Core Courses not bearing the designation have all been nominated for gtPathways. Once approved, they will be listed on the CCHE Web site at:
