    DE vs Calculus

    I am new to both Calculus and DE. I know calculus is used to solve DE, but can DE be considered as a part/topic of Calculus?

    Course-wise it can be considered a subject in calculus; but theoretically will it be completely correct to consider DE as the subset of Calculus? Consider if integration were not used to solve DE, would it still be a part of calculus?
