Degree Plans

All students are put on the current catalog when they enter the Department of Construction Science. Students may request to be moved forward to a newer catalog. Students must complete all of the requirements for their specific catalog to be awarded a degree.

To view the current catalog see the University Catalog.

Leveling Requirements

Graduate students in the Master of Science in Construction Management degree program are expected to possess fundamental knowledge of construction management.  In case a student is deficient, leveling courses may be required.  Leveling courses are assigned at the discretion of the student's supervising faculty.

English Language Proficiency

In addition to TOFEL testing required for application, ALL international students whose first language is not English need to pass the English Language Proficiency Exam (ELPE) administered by the Office of Measurement and Research Services at Texas A&M University in order to take MSCM core courses. A minimum score of 70 on all sections is required to pass the ELPE. Graduate Assistants must pass these tests with a score of 80 to be employed by the department.  Scores lower than 70 require completion of English Language Institute (ELI) courses. These courses must completed before MSCM core courses can be taken. Visit the following webpage for ELPE dates and additional information: Data and Research Services at Texas A&M.
