General Speech/Communication Field of Study
Senate Bill 148 of the 75th Texas Legislature (1997) mandated Field of Study curricula. The field of study curricula, along with core curricula, are intended to facilitate transferability of courses among Texas public colleges and universities.

All public four-year institutions are required to accept Coordinating Board approved field of study courses in fulfillment of lower-division requirements for bachelor’s degrees in majors that correspond to the field of study

The following set of courses is designed to apply to the bachelor’s degree of General Communication/Communication Studies/Speech Communications/Speech & Rhetorical Studies/Organizational Communication but may also be applied to the Bachelor or Arts or other baccalaureate-level General Communication/Communication Studies/Speech Communication/Speech & Rhetorical Studies/Organizational Communication degrees as deemed appropriate by the awarding institution.
