Computer Science & Mathematics

The TAMS Computer Science and Mathematics curricula allow students to pursue the original TAMS curriculum in Computer Science or to explore other fields related to computer science. Each pathway contains detailed information about its curriculum, including course descriptions, and each pathway can become a “2+2” degree program for TAMS student who remain at the University of North Texas to earn a baccalaureate degree.

Required Courses for Graduation with the TAMS Diploma
(Computer Science + Mathematics Track)

 

TAMS Computer Science to Computer Science

The Computer Science pathway is a “2+2” program that allows TAMS students interested in computer science to complete two years at TAMS and then remain at UNT for two years to complete a baccalaureate degree.  Although the CSCE department has introduced courses for new degrees in cybersecurity, CSCE 1030/1040 are required for the computer science degree.  TAMS students who choose this pathway are NOT obligated to remain at UNT to complete their degree; students may simply complete the TAMS program and then move on to their next educational institution.

Students may elect to change pathways ONCE at the end of their first semester but before the first day of class of the second semester.  This excludes the Music track as the College of Music requires a student to audition during the TAMS admissions process.  Changing tracks may require students to complete Summer courses between their first year and second year at TAMS in order to “catch up” with the requirements of the new pathway curriculum.  Students considering a change in pathway MUST meet with their Academic Counselor and MUST receive approval before enrolling in courses for their second semester.

Students who decide to pursue a degree in computer science at UNT can apply for the TAMS-to-Eagles scholarship during the second year of TAMS.  Students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher in TAMS/UNT, and recipients of the TAMS-to-Eagles scholarship receive $20,000 per year for up to three years or until a student receives a baccalaureate degree, whichever comes first.  TAMS students who remain at UNT are also eligible for many other scholarships, including the National Merit winner scholarship and a variety of college and departmental scholarships.  Thus, a TAMS student who remains at UNT to complete a baccalaureate degree could graduate from UNT within two years with little or no debt.

TAMS Computer Science to Computer Engineering

The Computer Engineering pathway is a “2+2” program that allows TAMS students interested in computer engineering to complete two years at TAMS and then remain at UNT for two years to complete a baccalaureate degree.  Although the CSCE department has introduced courses for new degrees in cybersecurity, CSCE 1030/1040 are required for the computer engineering degree.  TAMS students who choose this pathway are NOT obligated to remain at UNT to complete their degree; students may simply complete the TAMS program and then move on to their next educational institution.

Students may elect to change pathways ONCE at the end of their first semester but before the first day of class of the second semester.  This excludes the Music track as the College of Music requires a student to audition during the TAMS admissions process.  Changing tracks may require students to complete Summer courses between their first year and second year at TAMS in order to “catch up” with the requirements of the new pathway curriculum.  Students considering a change in pathway MUST meet with their Academic Counselor and MUST receive approval before enrolling in courses for their second semester.

TAMS Computer Science to Information Technology

The Information Technology pathway is a “2+2” program that allows TAMS students interested in Information Technology to complete two years at TAMS and then remain at UNT for two years to complete a baccalaureate degree.  Although the CSCE department has introduced courses for new degrees in cybersecurity, CSCE 1030/1040 are required for the computer science degree.  TAMS students who choose this pathway are NOT obligated to remain at UNT to complete their degree; students may simply complete the TAMS program and then move on to their next educational institution.  Students who complete Calculus II or higher the second semester of their first year will need to complete MATH 1680 or 1780 (Probability) during the second year.

Students may elect to change pathways ONCE at the end of their first semester but before the first day of class of the second semester.  This excludes the Music track as the College of Music requires a student to audition during the TAMS admissions process.  Changing tracks may require students to complete Summer courses between their first year and second year at TAMS in order to “catch up” with the requirements of the new pathway curriculum.  Students considering a change in pathway MUST meet with their Academic Counselor and MUST receive approval before enrolling in courses for their second semester.

2+2 Mathematics degree Grad Track at UNT

2+2 Mathematics Degree at UNT

This program is unique because it is a “2+2” program but with a “Grad Track” option that allows a TAMS student to complete a baccalaureate degree within four years or, if selecting the “Grad Track” option, a master’s degree in five years.  TAMS students who choose this pathway are NOT obligated to remain at UNT to complete their degree; students may simply complete the TAMS program and then move on to their next educational institution.

Students may elect to change pathways ONCE at the end of their first semester but before the first day of class of the second semester.  This excludes the Music track as the College of Music requires a student to audition during the TAMS admissions process.  Changing tracks may require students to complete Summer courses between their first year and second year at TAMS in order to “catch up” with the requirements of the new pathway curriculum.  Students considering a change in pathway MUST meet with their Academic Counselor and MUST receive approval before enrolling in courses for their second semester.

Students who decide to pursue a degree in mathematics at UNT can apply for the TAMS-to-Eagles scholarship during the second year of TAMS.  Students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher in TAMS/UNT, and recipients of the TAMS-to-Eagles scholarship receive $20,000 per year for up to three years or until a student receives a baccalaureate degree, whichever comes first.  TAMS students who remain at UNT are also eligible for many other scholarships, including the National Merit winner scholarship and a variety of college and departmental scholarships.  Thus, a TAMS student who remains at UNT to complete a baccalaureate degree could graduate from UNT within two years with little or no debt.
