All students must complete at least 51 semester credit hours of upper-division courses to graduate.
1. Incoming freshmen must enroll and complete requirements of UNIV 1010 and the corresponding school-related freshman seminar course. Students, including transfer students, who complete their core curriculum at UT Dallas must take UNIV 2020.
2. Degree is 149-150 semester credit hours if students are required to take NATS 1101.
3. Curriculum Requirements can be fulfilled by other approved courses from institutions of higher education. The courses listed are recommended as the most efficient way to satisfy both Core Curriculum and Major Requirements at UT Dallas.
4. Indicates a prerequisite class to be completed before enrolling for upper-division classes.
5. A required Major course that also fulfills a Core Curriculum requirement. Semester credit hours are counted in Core Curriculum.
6. Six semester credit hours of Calculus are counted under Mathematics Core and Component Area Option Core, and 2 semester credit hours of Calculus are counted as Biology Major Preparatory Courses.
7. Students may elect to substitute MATH 2417 for MATH 2413.
8. In order to make timely degree progress, students should complete MATH 2413 or MATH 2417 by the end of their first semester at UT Dallas. Students who will not meet this requirement should contact their academic advisor to discuss their degree timeline.
9. Certain courses listed are prerequisites for major core, major concentration, or major related courses. Choose accordingly.
10. Students may elect to substitute MATH 2419 for MATH 2414.
