The Computer Science Field of Study curriculum is designed for students seeking a bachelor’s degree with a major in computer science or a related discipline.

Austin Community College’s (ACC) field of study courses for computer science are listed below. The Field of Study Curriculum for Computer Science consists of 29 lower-division semester credit hours that are fully transferable to other Texas public colleges and universities and are applicable to the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science.

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

Transfer Notes:
COSC 1336 and COSC 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.

COSC 1336 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.

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 COSC 1337 will assist students who need additional background, but they do not apply toward the computer science major requirements.

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.

Students should always consult with an academic or Computer Sciences faculty advisor regarding transfer to a specific college or university. In addition, students should consult with an advisor at the Texas college or university to which they are transferring for additional information.
