TOTAL SEMESTER CREDIT HOURS: 120

1Foreign LanguageLanguage/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 4 weeks in another country.
2Math Electives, select 15 SCH from any 4000 level math courses, and excluding MATH 4390.
NOTE: See combined BS/MS programs in this section.

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