TOTAL SEMESTER CREDIT HOURS: 120

1Electives, select 12 SCH at the 3000-4000 level from arts, economics, humanities, natural sciences and social sciences. Courses must be outside the major and minor unless seeking a double major.
2Foreign Language/Study Abroad, select 6 SCH in course work (not credit by exam) above the university’s foreign language graduation 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. Note: Coursework may be applied to Liberal Arts Electives or Elective requirements below.

Actual degree plans may vary depending on availability of courses in a given semester.
Some courses may require prerequisites not listed.
