Texas state history class pre-req
- 0Aug 20, '12 by cincin1Is there a way to get out of taking this class? I am from out of state and it seems crazy to take a class that doesn't really apply to where you live or will practice after graduation...

I know that Texas requires 6 hours of history- my school required U.S. history before and after 1877. I believe one of my government classes that was required was Texas Government.. Texas has a core curriculum, you really can't skirt it.

They don't care where you're from or where you're going...you have to take them.Is there a way to get out of taking this class?

I don't recall having to take Texas history. It was just 6 hours of history, so I took US history 1 & 2. I believe Texas government is what is required.

Like the PP said...I'm sure it never even occurred to anyone in the legislature that someone WOULDN'T want to learn about Texas! We're just that awesomeOk. It's not the class that's the problem...its the money that I'm trying to save. I am already clepping out of one class. I guess I'm going to learn everything I didn't want to know about Texas government.
- 0Aug 26, '12 by Meriwhen, BSN, RN Senior ModeratorSorry, but if you attend a college in Texas you MUST take it. That's actually one of the things you learn in the Texas class: how and why the Texas government mandated specific history/government classes for all Texas college graduates.
It's actually a pretty interesting class..I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I took at the same time with Federal Government and scored As in both because they cover pretty much the exact same main topics, just one focuses on the federal level and one focuses on the state/local level. It was like a perpetual review.
- 0Aug 26, '12 by suzieQRNstudentI am from Florida and was a bit surprised that I had to take it too since I have taken Gov, US History etc. I am taking it in October. I am hoping it isn't going to kill me with a ton of work. So far right now US History is killing me. Mad that I have a B.S. degree and I have to take US History I and Texas History. I was hoping to save the money as well.
