Elective Opportunities

Help Us Update Our Elective List

Please fill out this feedback form if you have identified a course that is no longer offered or if you would like to recommend:

  • an UMSON course
  • a course at another school/college in the Baltimore or Rockville areas.

As an UMSON student, you may choose to take elective courses at UMSON or at colleges and universities in the area to enhance your practicum experience and/or satisfy the elective requirements of a program.

Over time, other programs and students have notified us of courses that may be of particular interest to UMSON students. We encourage you to explore them as ways to enhance your experience at UMSON.
