The following list of courses is not an exhaustive set of electives. It is a guideline that helps direct students to consider electives offered across a number of disciplines throughout the university.

You can filter down the list based on information from the graduate bulletin regarding when or how often courses are typically offered. Actual scheduling practices often differ from what is predicted by the bulletin (due to personnel changes, courses that didn't fill, etc), so be aware that filtering down may prove helpful in some cases, but it may also prove inaccurate. When in doubt, "Show All" and check availability.
