Students choose 9 credits of electives to complete their program. These electives may include up to six credits of language course work in Spanish (other foreign languages spoken in Latin America will be considered on a case-by-case basis). They may also include up to 4 credits of one-credit skills courses.

Additional courses may also be taken from any of the specialized fields, or in other areas or disciplines where such course would contribute to the student's professional knowledge and development.

Elective courses must be approved in advance by the Program Director.
