Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Major in Civil Engineering

Minimum required: 126 semester credit hours

General Requirements

  1. The general education core curriculum courses are listed in the degree plan below along with the statewide component code number. See the General Education Core Curriculum section of this catalog for the Texas State requirements and options in the core curriculum, including Honors courses.
  2. Majors must complete a minimum of 36 advanced hours (3000 or 4000 level courses).
  3. Nine semester credit hours must be writing intensive (WI).
  4. If two years of the same language are taken in high school, then no additional language hours will be required for the degree. In the absence of such high school language, two semesters of the same modern language must be taken at the college level.
  5. All students in the Civil Engineering degree programs must complete Civil Engineering (CE) course prerequisites with a grade of “C” or higher.
  6. For transfer students, 39 semester credit hours in chemistry, engineering, mathematics and physics (or their equivalents) may be transferred from a Texas public institution of higher education for the Civil Engineering Field of Study and be applied to the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Civil Engineering at Texas State University. More information about the Field of Study is available in the Academic Policies section of this catalog. The transferable Texas Common Course Number (TCCN) is listed below the Texas State University course number in the following course list.
