Political Science Field of Study Advisory Committee

The Political Science Field of Study Advisory Committee (Political Science FOSAC) identifies the block of courses which may be transferred to a general academic teaching institution and must be substituted for that institution's lower-division requirements for the Political Science degree program into which the student transfers..

Current Status: The Political Science FOSAC is a statutory committee that was established in 2017, and its purpose is outlined in the Texas Administrative Code.

Meeting Schedule: The committee meets as needed. Agendas are posted in the Texas Register a minimum of seven days before a meeting.

Membership: There are 24 Political Science FOSAC Members who serve terms up to three years. Members are nominated by their institutions and are chosen to evenly represent public, degree-granting institutions of varying sizes, regions, and missions. The committee is composed of faculty and administrators from institutions across the state, half from universities that offer one or more baccalaureate degree programs in Political Science, and half from community and technical colleges that offer courses leading to an undergraduate degree in Political Science.
