Elective Clusters

You can further customize your learning by adding an optional elective cluster in an area of interest to you. Each cluster consists of three courses, and they combine with your concentration’s program of study as follows:

  • The Advanced Clinical Practice concentration requires two 5-credit electives. You may choose to fulfill that requirement by adding an elective cluster, in which case you would be taking one more 5-credit course than your concentration requires.
  • The Military Social Work, Social Work in Healthcare, and Social Work With Children and Families concentrations do not require electives, so you may add an elective cluster to supplement your studies in a related area of interest. The three cluster courses would be in addition to the regular program requirements.

Note that some elective clusters may not be combined with certain concentrations. See elective cluster descriptions for any restrictions.
