Concentrations (Elective Specializations)

For students who wish to develop some expertise in a particular substantive area, but who also seek greater flexibility in terms of taking electives in a broad range of areas, we offer specialized concentration programs. There is no thesis requirement in any of the concentration programs.

Students may pursue more than one concentration. Required courses in concentrations may overlap and may count toward each concentration. When a required or elective course in one concentration is the same as an elective course in another concentration, a different elective course must be taken from those available in the second concentration. If you need assistance developing a plan to complete your concentration(s), please contact Christine Malone, Director, Student Academic Affairs, for assistance.
