Elective Courses

In addition to your core course requirements, Cultural Studies students will complete up to 4 elective courses (depending on program of study). Electives may be selected from courses offered by Cultural Studies and/or from courses offered by other departments.  Cultural Studies students who would like to take graduate courses in other departments will require permission from the instructor.

Please note that graduate courses are often timetabled in June and this page will be updated as information becomes available to us.  Class times and locations will also be made available by the department where the courses is offered - please be sure to check the graduate section of their website.

How do I register in a non-CUST elective?

Step 1.  Identify the instructor for any non-CUST elective course that is of interest to you.  Students seeking electives should review the list below and explore other opportunities by reviewing the graduate websites for any departments of interest (i.e., the list below is not always comprehensive). Often, professors will be willing to take a CS student into their course if there is room, and if the student has the appropriate background.

Step 2.  Write to the instructor, by email, with a description of your goals and background, and ask if they will accept you into their course. Please note that the answer may not be certain yet, and may depend on enrollment numbers, but establishing the relationship is the first step.

Step 3.  Once you have approval, you will need to print and complete an Academic Change Form.  Once completed, you will need to sign the form yourself and arrange for it to be signed by (1) the course instructor and (2) your supervisor.  Bring the completed, signed form to the Cultural Studies Office in B126B.  This can often be done by fax or email.
