ELECTIVE COURSES

All students are required to do elective credits — courses that are not a part of your program of study. What those are, and from where they come, will depend on such things as your degree, program or faculty.

Below, students can find a list of courses that are open to all students (no prerequisites — unless stated — and no restrictions).

Students may also choose to organize their elective credits based on a thematic selective group of courses (there may be prerequisites and restrictions).

The Faculty of Arts and Science’s Elective Groups, are open to all students.
