  37. 37. UT Computer Science Undergraduate Pathway  The old curriculum had eleven CS courses that students were required to take, leaving little time for electives  The new curriculum has only six:  Programming (2)  Systems (2)  Theory (2)  This gives students the opportunity to dive into concentration areas, or to study computer science more broadly by sampling from various subareas 37 https://www.cs.utexas.edu/undergraduate-program/academics/curriculum/courses
