UT Austin believes that every undergraduate should be exposed to a set of skills and experiences in preparation for a complex world. To this end, all undergraduates at UT are required to earn Flags—courses that include a substantial focus on one of the following six areas:
Flagged courses are taught in nearly every department at UT, at upper-and lower-division levels, and cover a wide variety of topics. Flags are offered across the curriculum so you will learn about writing or ethical decision-making, for example, in the context of your own discipline.
Each college and school is implementing Flags on a different timeline, so speak with your academic advisor or check the Flag requirements by catalog to determine which Flags you need for your major and catalog. Learn more about Flags.
