Science and Mathematics Bulletin – Transfer Programs


Science and Mathematics Division

Academic Areas: Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, Geology, Mathematics, Military Science, and Physics. Pre-professional: Dental, Medical, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, and Veterinary.

Field of Study Programs:

  • Computer Science
  • Engineering

The associate in science core is designed to give students breadth of knowledge in general education, promote critical thinking that is fundamental to higher education and allow students to take specific courses in a discipline. Students working toward the associate in science degree will take essential core requirements that will allow them to transfer to a senior college. Angelina College offers the associate in science degree to students completing the general graduation requirements, core curriculum requirements, and those courses required for the academic area.

Please see an advisor in this area for further information.

The specialized degree programs have been aligned with the transfer institution’s requirements, but those may vary. Therefore it is in the best interest of the student to consult with their transfer institution and communicate with their advisor and/or Division Director. Only the Division Director will make substitutions for other courses.

Some degrees do not require completion of the core curriculum. Fields of study supplant core requirement.


Computer Science 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.

Core Curriculum and Field of Study for Computer Science is designed for students seeking a bachelor’s degree with a major in Computer Science.

The following set of courses may be applied as deemed appropriate by the awarding institution. The field of study curriculum is furthermore intended to serve as a guide for community and technical colleges in structuring a transfer curriculum in Computer Science.

Fields of study are valid only when no course substitutions are made.

*Core Curriculum Courses

Select courses from the Core Curriculum (*Core curricula changes effective Fall 2015 THECB).

Semester Credit Hours: 24

Students should visit with an advisor regarding transfer to a specific college or university.
