TOTAL SEMESTER CREDIT HOURS: 120

1Foreign Language/Study Abroad, select 6 SCH in course work (not credit by exam) above the university’s foreign language admission requirement. Thus students who meet the university’s foreign language graduation requirement by earning 6 hours of credit by exam, may take 6 SCH in the same language but at the intermediate level or above, or they may take 6 SCH of another foreign language at the introductory level. 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.
2Math elective, select 3 SCH from any math course above the level of College Algebra.
3U.S. History, select 9 SCH from HIST 3370, 3375, 3380, 3385, 4316, 4317, 4318, 4366, 4367, 4368, 4390.
4Non-U.S. History, select 9 SCH from HIST 3301, 3330, 3391, 3392, 3393, 3394, 3395, 4330, 4331, 4332, 4340, 4341, 4342, or 4391.
