The faculty has approval to offer the following courses in the academic years 2000-2001 and 2001-2002; however, not all courses are taught each semester or summer session. Students should consult the Course Schedule to determine which courses and topics will be offered during a particular semester or summer session. The Course Schedule may also reflect changes that have been made to the courses listed here since this catalog was printed.
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.
Department of Air Force Science
The Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) was activated at the University of Texas in September, 1947. The program is designed to commission career-oriented officers who meet specific Air Force requirements. The AFROTC objective is to place on active duty lieutenants who demonstrate dedication to their assignments, willing acceptance of responsibility, critical and creative thinking, and the ability to speak and write effectively. All cadets who are commissioned through AFROTC, except those who enter into flying training, are required to serve a four-year tour of active duty. Navigators are required to serve a six-year tour and pilots are required to serve a ten-year tour after earning an aeronautical rating. Graduate education is also possible under the auspices of the Air Force while on active duty.
A wide variety of extracurricular activity is available through AFROTC. Intramural athletics, parades, ceremonies, parties, dinners, picnics, field trips to Air Force installations, and membership in national military societies are typical examples.
AFROTC courses are taught by Air Force officers and are approved for college credit toward the cadet's degree program in amounts determined by the college concerned. Students may choose a four-year or a two-year program.
AFROTC scholarships are available to selected cadets. These scholarships, available to freshmen, sophomores, and first-semester juniors, are for two to four years; they cover full tuition costs, laboratory expenses, and incidental fees and provide an allowance for textbooks and a monthly stipend of $200. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of overall merit, with particular attention paid to academic achievement. Established academic standards must be maintained in order to retain the scholarships. Other scholarships are also available for upper-division cadets. For additional information, contact the chairman of the department.
Department of Air Force Science courses are designed to prepare selected students for a commission in the United States Air Force through the AFROTC program. Students who do not hold AFROTC scholarships may take lower-division courses with no military obligation. Scholarship students and selected students who elect to take upper-division courses do so on contract and, upon graduation and commissioning, enter active duty in the Air Force.

Department of Military Science
The Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) was established at the University of Texas in September, 1947. As a senior division unit, it is designed to provide a course of military instruction that will permit qualified students to prepare themselves for commissions as reserve second lieutenants while they pursue other academic courses leading to baccalaureate or advanced degrees from the University.
Upon being commissioned a second lieutenant, each student has the opportunity to serve in the active Army, Army Reserve, or National Guard.
The Army ROTC program, in addition to providing a basic foundation in military subjects, is designed to develop the highest qualities of leadership, character, and citizenship through the wide variety of extracurricular activities it sponsors. Such activities include parades, ceremonies, social events, a Ranger unit, and intramural athletic teams.
The Army ROTC program is normally a four-year program divided into a basic course and an advanced course. The basic course is conducted during the first two years and the advanced course during the last two years. Students incur no military obligation until they enter the advanced course. Certain students may qualify for advanced placement in the program based on previous military training in Junior ROTC, a service academy, active duty in a military service, credit for other college courses, or completion of a special six-week summer camp, normally between the sophomore and the junior year.
The Department of the Army has determined that a need exists for all Army ROTC cadets to have a demonstrated proficiency in selected disciplines. These courses are called Professional Military Education (PME) and must be completed prior to graduation. A list of courses that fulfill PME requirements is available from the chairman of the Department of Military Science.
Two-, three-, and four-year scholarship programs are offered to selected cadets. The four-year scholarship program is administered by the Department of the Army, but selection is based on the Professor of Military Science Order of Merit List (OML). Applicants must apply while in high school. The remaining programs are administered directly through the Department of Military Science.
Scholarship students receive $200 a month for up to ten months for each year of their scholarship. The scholarship pays for required tuition, fees, and laboratory expenses, and provides an allowance each semester for books. Nonscholarship students receive only $200 a month during the advanced course. For additional information, contact the chairman of the department.

Department of Naval Science
The Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) was established at the University of Texas in September, 1940, to offer the naval science courses necessary to qualify University students for commissions in the United States Navy or Marine Corps.
Qualified students may apply for the four-year or two-year Navy-Marine Scholarship Program or college program (nonscholarship) and earn a commission in the Navy or Marine Corps.
NROTC scholarship students are appointed midshipmen, United States Naval Reserve, by the Secretary of the Navy, and granted the compensation and benefits authorized by law. While students attend the University, the Navy pays tuition, cost of textbooks, fees of instructional nature, and a subsistence allowance of $150 a month during the academic year. During drill periods and summer training periods, midshipmen wear government-furnished uniforms. Scholarships are obtained by applying to a naval recruiting station before December 1 of each year or to the Department of Naval Science after the first semester of enrollment in the college program. For additional information, contact the chairman of the department.
