Associate in Arts/Associate in Sciences Field of Study Degrees (Archived)

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has created Fields of Study designed to transfer as a block of credit to any Texas public college or university. Such Fields of Study comprise the courses a student should complete at the freshman and sophomore level that will lead to a specific major in a degree. Students' transcripts will include a notation indicating a specific Field of Study has been completed. In order for such a notation to appear, students must successfully complete specific courses within each Field of Study. No course substitutions, other than those shown within the degree plan, will be permitted.

In addition, students may wish to combine a completed Field of Study with the core curriculum requirements to complete the appropriate Associates degree. In order to do so, students should complete the courses indicated in the degree plans located elsewhere in this catalog. However, care must be taken as in some instances students may have to make a choice between pursuing the degree or the official Field of Study because of the number of hours required. As additional Fields of Study are made available, information may be located on the college web page.

The following Fields of Study, or majors, are available:
