Georgia History and Constitution Legislative Requirements

As required by Georgia law, all students must demonstrate knowledge of the history and constitutions of the United States and of Georgia. To demonstrate this knowledge, students must pass Hist 2110 and PolS 1101 at Georgia State, have previously completed these courses at a University System of Georgia institution, or pass the proficiency examination in these legislative requirements. Testing information is available for students at the Counseling and Testing Center.

Students who transfer in American Government or Constitution courses from a non-system school will be required to take the Georgia History and Constitution exams. Transfer students who have fulfilled any or all parts of this requirement will be advised of that fact at the time of admission and evaluation of transfer credit.

Note: If a student takes and passes all 4 examinations, the student must select additional course(s) from Section 3, Social Science Foundations in Core Area E.
