Elective Courses

Students should select remaining elective courses in consultation with their advisers to create an organized plan leading to the desired specialization as well as program breadth. In addition to advanced electives in CEE, a variety of courses are available across campus that are related to societal risk management that can be used to partially fulfill the remaining required credit hours for the M.S. and Ph.D.  Students may also select other courses in agreement with their advisers.
