IV. ELECTIVE COURSES [18 credits] 

Focus Areas

Focus Areas are optional groupings of courses to help you choose electives. You can go deeper in your specialization and develop more advanced skills by choosing electives within the specialization-related focus areas below. To pursue depth in a focus area we suggest completing 9 credits. To pursue breadth, you may also choose electives across focus areas. 

Relationships Across Differences

The courses in this area address varied aspects of creating relationships and working together across varied interests and a range of differences. Some of the courses focus on particular social identities, like race, gender and disability, and how to jointly address systemic inequities based on those identities. Others focus more on the processes that enable collaboration across differences, like negotiation, partnerships and participation. Focusing in this area will enable students to connect more authentically with people different from themselves, and also strengthen their capacity to build more equitable organizations and create collaborations among groups with varied interests.
