Program Description

The Associate of Arts degree in Academic Studies curriculum is designed for students who plan to pursue a baccalaureate degree but are undecided about a specific major. The degree plan provides a core curriculum that will transfer to any state-supported college or university in Texas. It includes the general education requirements for almost any baccalaureate degree. Electives beyond the Core Curriculum allow students to explore various disciplines in order to determine a major. 

A certificate in Academic Studies is earned by simply completing the Core Curriculum requirements.
