Old Undergraduate Symbolic Systems Core Curriculum -- available only to students who declared SSP through Autumn Quarter 2001-2002
There are a total of 13 courses in the core; along with the five courses for a concentration, this makes 18 courses for the major (not counting prerequisites for those courses that have them). Hence, students who begin working on the major as sophomores should plan on taking approximately two courses per quarter towards the major, and those who begin as juniors will need to take approximately three courses per quarter towards the major. Courses that are prerequisites for many more advanced courses, such as CS 103, CS 106, CS 109, and Phil 80 should be taken relatively early, if possible.
Very few of the courses for the Symbolic Systems major are offered every quarter, and many are offered only once per year. The timing of particular courses may vary from year to year, so long-term plans may need to be revised. In recent years, the courses have tended to be offered in the quarters listed below, but there is no guarantee that this pattern will continue.
CS 154: Winter and Spring CS 221: Autumn Ling 120: Autumn Ling 130: Winter Phil 80: Autumn and Spring, or just Winter Phil 159: Autumn Phil 160A: Winter Phil 160B: Spring Psych 30: Spring Psych 40: Winter Psych 131: Autumn
Although students are not required to take core courses in any particular sequence, the following sample schedules may be helpful. A student who begins the major as a sophomore might have a schedule like this:
