Students have the option of choosing electives offered by the program that will help them tailor their coursework to meet their specific career goals. The program typically offers many courses in areas of public administration like public management, non-profit management, and environmental policy and administration. With approval, students are permitted to take up to 6 hours of electives outside of the Arts and Sciences College.
