All students are required to successfully complete 12 elective credits to obtain their degree. Elective requirements may be fulfilled through a combination of options:
a. Elective course (3 credits each)
b. Skills Seminars (3 skills seminars = equals 1 elective course/3 credits)
c. A Master's Research Project (MIR-898) (equals 2 electives/6 credits)
Electives are intended to offer students the chance to focus on areas of IR/HR that are of specific interest based on each student’s professional goals and timetable. While every effort is made to accommodate preferences, electives vary year-to-year and between full and part-time programs; not all options will be available in any given year.
Here is a sample of our current and recent offerings:
