General Guidance for DS&C Students

  1. The DSC area does not set any area specific course requirements. Faculty supervisors are encouraged to design a course plan for each student which employs all available university course resources to address each student’s needs.
  2. Not every course is offered every semester, consult the course catalog for course availability.
  3. Under current Graduate Studies Committee rules, up to two undergraduate electives may be taken for credit by MS students, if they have not previously taken a similar course.
  4. The course lists which follow identify relevant courses; they are not course plans or a list of required courses. The lists are intended primarily to assist new students in planning their first year course schedule.
  5. The final degree plan for each student must be approved by the Graduate Advisor. In the case of PhD students, the final course plan must also be approved by the dissertation committee.
  6. Courses are listed in the format used in the on-line (registration) course schedule. More detailed course descriptions can be obtained by consulting the online Graduate Catalog at http://catalog.utexas.edu/graduate/
