This requirement may also be met by earning 6 SCH in any subject while participating in a TAMIU-approved Study Abroad program while living for at least 5 weeks in a non-English speaking country.
5General Electives: select 21 SCH, at least 18 of which must be at the 3000-4000 level, from any discipline outside the College of Nursing and Health Sciences. Electives may be used to develop a minor.
