The Core Curriculum (Beginning Fall 2014)

The central and essential mission of the Prairie View A&M University Core Curriculum is to develop in each undergraduate student the capability to perform effectively in academic and professional settings. The program stresses communication and critical thinking skills necessary for outstanding performance in a multi-faceted, modern, and changing society.

All degree programs include 42 semester hours of course work from approved areas of study recognized as the required general education program. Listed in the right column are the equivalent courses that may be transferred from Texas community and junior colleges as approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

To assist students who transfer to Prairie View A&M University from other public colleges and universities in Texas, the University carefully evaluates course credits presented for acceptance toward fulfillment of degree requirements.
