Field of Study Curriculum for Computer Science – CS3
The Computer Science Field of Study is designed for students who plan to major in Computer Science and transfer to a public Texas four-year college or university. Students will gain an Associate of Science degree and will be able to transfer the set of major courses as a block to any university in Texas as long as they complete all of the courses with a grade of “C” or better.

NOTE: Math 2413 is a prerequisite for the Physics series. Students should plan their coursework accordingly.
- COSC 1336/1436 and 1337/1437 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 1336/1436 is not part of the Computer Science major requirements at The University of Texas at Austin, University of Texas at Arlington, University of Texas at Dallas, and Texas A&M University.
- b. COSC 1337/1437 is not part of the Computer Science major requirements at The University of Texas at Austin. Preparatory courses such as COSC 1336/1436 and COSC 1337/1437 will assist students who need additional background but do not apply toward the Computer Science major requirements.
- COSC 2325/2425 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.
- 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.
