TEXAS CORE CURRICULUM
(See Table on Next Page)
The Texas Education Code requires all public colleges
and universities to have a core curriculum and every
degree has a Texas core requirement. Core
curriculum is defined as “the curriculum in the liberal
arts, humanities, sciences, and political, social and
cultural history that all undergraduate students of a
particular Texas institution of higher education are
required to complete before receiving an associate or
bachelor’s degree.” The purpose of the core
curriculum is to provide the skills, knowledge and
perspectives that help define the educated person.
The core curriculum focuses on strengthening six
basic intellectual competencies - reading, writing,
speaking, listening, critical thinking and computer
literacy - that are essential to the learning process in
any discipline.

Texas Core Certificate


A Texas Core Certificate is awarded to all students
completing Collin’s core curriculum. The State of
Texas guarantees acceptance by a public four-year
university of any complete Texas core transferred
from any other Texas public college. However, if
the entire core curriculum is not completed at Collin,
the transfer college may decide on a course-by-
course basis whether credit will be transferred and
applied to the core curriculum.

The Texas Core Curriculum at Collin


College is the collection of 42 credit hours of
general education courses selected by Collin faculty
in eight areas that have been approved by the Texas
Higher Education Coordinating Board to build a basic
core of knowledge. Your course options are displayed
by area and discipline in the following table. Students
should visit with an academic advisor to ensure the
best selection of courses to complete the core
curriculum and/or an associate degree, and to
transfer to their chosen major for a baccalaureate.
