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

In addition to the Associate in Arts, Associate in Sciences and Associate of Arts in Teaching Degrees offered, a student may also complete an official Field of Study.

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has created Field of Study Degrees, which are designed to transfer as a block of credit to any Texas public college or university. Field of Study Degrees are comprised of 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 that states a specific Field of Study has been completed. In order for such a notation to appear, students must successfully complete specific courses comprising the Field of Study. No course substitutions, other than those shown within the 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. 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. The following Field of Study Degrees are currently available:
