In the last five semesters of the major, there are two internal applications students are required to submit. One for the Foundation semester and the other for the Professional Development Sequence or “PDS.”
The Foundation semester is Spring Entry only and helps students prepare for their PDS. A 2.35 minimum UT grade point average is required to enter Foundations but does not guarantee admission. The Professional Development Sequence is Fall Entry only. Admission to the PDS requires a minimum 2.5 UT grade point average and completion of required prerequisite coursework with a “C” or better.
Prospective University of Texas at Austin students should visit UT Admissions to learn about the application process and how to declare a major.
