* In addition to the above elective courses, courses from the departments having programs in our Graduate School of Natural and Applied Sciences may be taken with the approval of the graduate advisor of the student and the department head. These will be counted as elective courses as well. However, only up to 6 credit hours of such courses can be counted towards the degree requirements.
