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.
3Students must apply for admission to the College of Education while enrolled in EDCI 3324.
