Courses in the Core
All students at The University of Texas at Austin must complete a 42-hour core curriculum requirement, regardless of major. These core courses may be used to satisfy other degree requirements. However, a core course cannot be used to satisfy more than one core requirement. Beginning with the 2010-2012 Catalog, all graduates in the College of Natural Sciences must complete the entire core.
Texas Undergraduate Studies maintains the core curriculum lists according to the university catalog that you claim:
