The University Studies degree is an innovative option 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 at Texas A&M and in good standing in the three areas they choose for their concentration and minors. Students must have no more than 100 passed hours at the time of application.

Both the University Studies — Mathematics for Teaching and University Studies — Science for Secondary Teaching degrees require the Applied Learning in STEM minor as well as membership in aggieTEACH.
