What is an elective course?

Electives enable students to select coursework tailored to personal interests and offer the opportunity to acquire breadth beyond that specified in General Education requirements, select introductory courses in other majors, and take additional courses in a student's major that may not be required for the degree. With the appropriate prerequisites and level of preparedness, and within the constraints of course limitations, students can shape this unstructured exploration to satisfy their intellectual curiosity and individual academic needs.
