Upper-Level Elective Courses and Course Tracks

Overview of Elective Curriculum

In addition to taking required courses, upper-level students can choose from a variety of elective courses.   Elective course offerings vary from semester to semester and may include courses that are not listed in the Academic Catalog.

Academic Catalog

Before registration for any semester or session, students should consult the course information on CSOLAccess, Courses by Semester, for that particular semester or session. In addition to listing course schedule information, this page will have the most current information on prerequisites for particular courses, a notation as to whether the course satisfies the Skills or Upper-Level Writing requirements in that semester or session, and whether the course is graded on a pass/fail basis. Additional information will be included in a Catalog Addendum for that particular semester or session, which will be made available prior to registration.

For course descriptions, please consult the Academic Catalog.
