Notes:

1. COSC 1336 and 1337 are preparatory and sequential in nature; however, not all courses are required for the computer science major at all universities, but may apply to general degree requirements

a. COSC 1336 is not part of the computer science major requirements at The University of Texas at Austin, The University of Texas at Arlington, The University of Texas at Dallas, and Texas A&M University.

b. COSC 1337 is not part of the computer science major requirements at The University of Texas at Austin. Preparatory courses such as COSC 1336 and 1337 will assist students needing additional background but do no apply toward the computer science major requirements.

2. COSC 2325 is not part of the computer science major requirements at The University of Texas at Austin or Texas A&M University, but may be applied to general degree requirements.

3. It is recommended that students complete the math sequence, physics sequence, and computer science sequence at the same institution to reduce the likelihood of potential gaps in the curriculum.
