Core Curriculum

The Core Curriculum is the set of courses in liberal arts, humanities, sciences, and political, social and cultural history that undergraduates of a public higher education institution in Texas are required to complete before receiving an academic undergraduate degree. Students seeking a CTC Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree are required to complete a 42-hour core curriculum. Students who successfully complete the core curriculum may transfer the block of courses to another Texas public institution of higher education and substitute the block for the receiving institution’s core curriculum. Students who do not complete the 42-hour core curriculum may still transfer those courses completed successfully to another public college or university in Texas. They will generally be required to complete the remainder of the courses in the receiving institution’s core curriculum. For a list of the courses in the core curriculum, refer to the Programs of Study section of this Catalog.
