Elective Courses

Electives provide students with flexibility in their programs of study. The elective categories help students make choices beyond the required courses for their respective programs.

Liberal Arts Electives include not only those categorized as Liberal Arts Electives but also the Science/Lab Science, Social Science and Behavioral Science Electives.

Career Electives are courses in the student’s major field or related field approved by the department chair or program coordinator.
