University Studies Degree
The University Studies degree is an innovative course of study that provides Texas A&M University students with the flexibility to combine several areas of interest into an individual degree plan. A US degree plan includes a concentration in one area of study of at least 21 hours, combined with two minors, each of which may require at least 15 hours. One minor must be in an academic department outside the college of the concentration.
For example, a student with a concentration in Leadership Studies from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences would take at least 21 hours in that concentration and also might minor in Agricultural Communication (15 hours in the Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education and Communication, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences) and in English (15 hours in the Department of English, College of Liberal Arts).
The following colleges offer University Studies concentrations:
A list of all minors available at Texas A&M University and Texas A&M University Galveston can be found at the web page listed here
