Electives in Humanities and Social Sciences
Our faculty offers hundreds of electives courses that anyone can take. By "electives," we mean courses that have no prerequisites (or just 1).
These courses are available to students in our faculty looking for electives, but also students from other faculties, undeclared students, Memorial employees or the general public who may be interested in a specific topic, or looking for some professional development.
