Fields of Study, along with the Core Curriculum, are designed to make it easy to transfer courses among Texas colleges and universities.

What Is a Field of Study?

A field of study is a set of courses that fulfills lower-division (freshman and sophomore) requirements for bachelor's degrees in majors that correspond to the Field of Study.

This means that once you successfully complete the set of courses in your chosen Field of Study, those courses will transfer and apply to a corresponding bachelor's-level degree at a Texas college or university.

All Texas public colleges and universities are required to accept Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board-approved field of study curricula, along with core curricula.
