Certificates and Certifications
An academic minor allows students to expand and broaden their educational experience by exploring a particular subject or subjects in sufficient depth to gain competency. By completing a minor, a student can become familiar with an additional area of study which will supplement the expertise gained in the major. To declare a minor, students must be advised by their assigned faculty mentor and complete the application for minor form (PDF).
Military Science Leadership/ROTC
GGC now offers students pursuing degrees in any area the opportunity to also gain valuable leadership skills through the Military Science Leadership/ ROTC program.
Students may enroll in a program leading to a double major. A student may complete a double major by completing one type of baccalaureate degree (e.g., a Bachelor of Science) and electing to concurrently pursue two majors of that type of degree. A student must complete a double major simultaneously. In order to complete a double major students must satisfy all requirements for both majors, including general education requirements across schools if applicable. Courses common to both majors may be counted toward the requirements of each major. Courses that are required or are electives in one major may be used to fulfill electives in the other major, however, the double major must contain coursework of a minimum of 150 credit hours. Student completing a double major will receive one diploma with both major fields of study noted on the transcript. To declare a double major, students must be advised by faculty in both academic disciplines and complete the Application for Double Major form (PDF).

Students may choose to complete multiple concentrations within the same academic degree program. In order to complete multiple concentrations, students must satisfy all required courses for each concentration, including specified general education requirements across schools, if applicable. In addition to the completion of these required courses, students must earn the total number of credits required in the first concentration and they also must take a minimum of 15 additional hours for each concentration, or the stipulated amount of hours for the concentration in that discipline, as is applicable. Multiple concentrations will be noted on the transcript.
To declare multiple concentrations, students must complete the Application for Multiple Concentrations form (PDF). After declaring multiple concentrations, students must be advised by the appropriate faculty in each of the academic specialty areas, if applicable.
If a student would like to take 15-18 hours in a discipline or major outside of his/her academic degree program, the student should pursue the appropriate academic minor.
