Humanities and Social Sciences

Humanities and Social Sciences Electives - three- and four-credit electives are offered in humanities (courses with prefixes HIST, HUMN, LITR, PHIL) and social sciences (courses with prefixes ECON, POLS, PSYC and SOCL). Three-credit electives are typically numbered in the 100s, while four-credit electives are typically numbered in the 400s.

Some communications courses (prefixed COMM) count as electives. COMM290 and 330 count as three-credit electives, while COMM580 and 610 count as four-credit social science electives.

You can use the Course Section Search function on Leopardweb to find what electives are being offered each semester. In addition to searching on subject, you can also search by attribute, which will allow you to see all electives that meet a particular requirement.

Please reference the academic catalog and your degree audit to make sure that you are taking the appropriate mix of humanities and social science courses.
