Approved Electives and Focus Areas

Students select elective courses for a minimum of 12 credits from the list of elective courses approved for their chosen Focus Area. In selecting these courses, students should follow the University’s requirement that the elective courses taken for the minor must come from at least three different academic departments, with the Carroll School counting as a single department. The specific courses approved for each Focus Area are reviewed and updated regularly by the Managing for Social Impact Faculty Coordinating Committee. Students are advised to check course offerings carefully in planning their program as not all the elective courses are offered each year.
