Courses

The faculty has approval to offer the following courses in the academic years 2012-2013 and 2013–2014; however, not all courses are taught each semester or summer session. Students should consult the Course Schedule at http://registrar.utexas.edu/schedules/ to determine which courses and topics will be offered during a particular semester or summer session. The Course Schedule may also reflect changes made to the course inventory after the publication of this catalog. For current information, students should consult the schedule posted in the School of Architecture.

A full explanation of course numbers is given in General Information. In brief, the first digit of a course number indicates the semester hour value of the course. The second and third digits indicate the rank of the course: if they are 01 through 19, the course is of lower-division rank; if 20 through 79, of upper-division rank; if 80 through 99, of graduate rank.

The information in parentheses after a course number is the Texas Common Course Numbering (TCCN) designation. Only TCCN designations that are exact semester-hour equivalents of University courses are listed here. Additional TCCN information is given in Appendix A.
