Graduate Elective Courses

Gallatin offers a series of elective courses each semester, including fiction writing, social theory and methods, and human rights.  Examples of recent elective courses include "Adaptation: Screenplays and Source Material;" "American Society and Culture in Transition;" and "Advanced Urban Design: Creating Green Cities."

Note that students who enter the program in Summer 2013 and later are required to take four elective units in graduate courses offered by Gallatin as part of the Graduate Core.  Please see Core Courses Effective Summer 2013 and Later for more information about this requirement.
