Government Course Requirement Change

Beginning in the fall of 2013, Wharton County Junior College will offer new government classes to satisfy recent changes to state core course requirements.

As a result of recent legislation, all Texas colleges and universities must offer two new government courses, GOVT 2305 (Federal Government) and GOVT 2306 (Texas Government). The only core government courses required for degree-seeking Texas graduates will be GOVT 2305 and GOVT 2306. Transferability of these new courses will be guaranteed between public colleges and universities within Texas.

If you have already satisfied the requirements of both courses GOVT 2301 and GOVT 2302 the requirement change will not affect you.
