Students have the option to select electives to study a particular subject area more deeply or to choose any two electives. To support student learning based on varied interests and career needs, elective courses have been grouped. The list is not exhaustive given that the educational and professional needs of every student cannot be predicted; courses change or are removed over time; and departments add new courses that may be beneficial for student learning and professional development. Thus, the MHA Academic Director may approve other electives for students on an individual basis. Note that some electives may have prerequisites. See the list of recommended electives below:
