*Elective: Students will choose from a variety of courses that allow them to give their degrees a particular vocational focus. For example, students who would like to know more about Human Resources Management can take either IDIS-D512/BUS-Z441 (Wage and Salary Administration) or IDIS-D512/BUS-Z445 (Human Resource Selection). Although IDIS-D512/BUS-Z440 (Personnel-Human Resource Management) is a prerequisite for these courses, faculty have agreed that IDIS-D512/PSY-B378 (required for the concentration) can serve as an equivalent course.
