3General Electives: select 20 SCH, at least 18 of which must be at the 3000-4000 level, from any discipline, except the major field, outside the College of Nursing and Health Sciences. Electives may be used to develop a minor.
4Advanced CRIJ, select 12 SCH from 3000-4000 level CRIJ.

This requirement may also be met by earning 6 SCH in any subject while participating in a TAMIU-approved Study Abroad program while living for at least 5 weeks in a non-English speaking country.
6Research Methods, select 3 SCH from CRIJ 3305, PSCI 3301, or SOCI 3305.
