Field of Study Programs

A Field of Study (FOS) is a set of courses that, together with the core coursework, fulfill lower-division (freshman and sophomore) requirements for a specific major/degree plan. FOSs are guaranteed to transfer to any public college or university in Texas.

Once you have successfully completed the set of courses that makes up the FOS, those courses are guaranteed to apply to the appropriate bachelor's-level degree plans corresponding to the field of study. Receiving colleges and universities are not allowed to require incoming transfer students to repeat courses with the same content as FOS courses to satisfy requirements for the academic major.

Did you know that you can also earn an AA or AS degree at Collin College, in addition to the Field of Study certificate? Contact an academic advisor today to learn more about how to develop an educational plan that is right for you.

These are the FOS programs currently available at Collin College.
