University Studies

The University Studies degree is an innovative degree that provides students at Texas A&M the flexibility to combine several areas of interest into an individual degree plan. Academic advising and the process through which students submit proposals are key to ensuring that students complete degrees that will meet their academic and career expectations.

Students interested in applying to University Studies should determine the desired combination of one concentration and two minors. Students must meet with an Academic Advisor to discuss their plans, grade requirements and receive an application packet.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis once they are submitted. Students must be in overall good academic standing (see GPA requirements below, no I's or X's) at TAMU and in good standing in the three areas they choose for their concentration and minors. Student must have no more than 100 passed hours at the time of application.

University Studies degrees offered by the College of Science:

University Studies, Mathematics for Business

The Mathematics for Business area of concentration consists of courses that are designed to give students a solid foundation for the business environment. (2.0 GPA)

Advisor: Michael Stecher | Degree Plan

University Studies, Mathematics for Pre-Professional Students

This area of concentration consists of courses that are designed to give a solid foundation for Pre-Professional students. (2.0 GPA)

Advisor: Michael Stecher | Degree Plan

University Studies, Mathematics for Teaching

The Mathematics for Teaching area of concentration consists of courses in mathematics and education to prepare students to become secondary certified teachers in mathematics. (2.75 GPA or approval of academic advisor)

Advisor: Vincent Schielack | Degree Plan

University Studies, Science for Secondary Teaching

The Secondary Science Teaching area of concentrations consists of courses in science and education to prepare students to become secondary certified science teachers. (2.75 GPA or approval of academic advisor)

Advisor: Jennifer Whitfield | Degree Plan

While we understand that not everyone can come and be an on-campus Aggie, we have perfected the ability to make people 'virtual Aggies' and offer them the same first class degree that our on-campus students earn. Learn more about our online degree programs.

Honors in Science is a research based program that prepares students in subjects in the College of Science to excel in future endeavors, be they graduate school or outside of academe. As such, the program requires the student to take honors courses from a number of departments within the college so as to broaden their honors experience beyond their major.
