University Core

State law requires that all University of Houston-Victoria students complete a general education Core Curriculum of 42 semester credit hours that serves as a broad foundation for the undergraduate degree. UH-Victoria’s 42-hour core curriculum is based on a series of basic intellectual competencies--reading, writing, speaking, listening, critical thinking, and computer literacy—that are essential to the learning process in any discipline. These requirements must be met by every student pursuing a baccalaureate degree program at UH-Victoria, regardless of his or her major. Visit the Texas General Education Core Curriculum WebCenter to verify whether the course(s) will satisfy core requirements.
