ELEC XXX - Elective Course(s)


Free electives play an important role in the University’s mission of providing a dynamic milieu for creative exploration, innovation, and intellectual investigation, extending the practice and understanding of the arts and the arts profession.  They give the student the opportunity to explore subjects beyond those offered or required by the major department and encourage educational autonomy on the student’s part.

An elective is defined as any studio or liberal arts course that is neither a requirement for the student’s major nor a requirement for the University’s liberal arts core.  Electives are courses that a student can choose freely without restriction.  While advisors may make recommendations regarding electives, the final choice for elective courses must rest with the student.  Obviously, prerequisites and corequisites apply to any course that a student may elect to take.
