Electives

Elective Information

All students are required to complete four elective course equivalents (note several courses are equivalent to two electives). The primary electives should be in the area of the anticipated thesis research.

There are many other elective courses offered within PEMM or other programs and departments within the College. An outline of the plan for electives must be developed with the selected thesis advisor and advisory committee.
