While the core courses help you develop skills and core competencies about working with communities and organizations, the elective courses allow you to gain a deeper set of skills and knowledge in focused areas.

Students select electives based on individual learning goals and are negotiated with the ECO academic advisor.  The ECO major requires 25 credits of elective courses.  

  • Any undergraduate course in the College of Education may be used to satisfy the electives requirement.
  • Students with a declared double major may count 15 credits from their other major toward ECO elective credits.
  • Students with a declared minor may count 10 credits of their minor toward ECO elective credits.
  • Student may count up to 5 credits of “community-based” coursework (e.g. Dream Project, Pipeline, mentoring, GENST, study abroad, etc) toward ECO elective credits. **

**These credits are applied at advisor discretion.
