Concentrations and Electives

Students may take electives in any of the following areas to develop a concentration. A minimum of two electives comprises an area of concentration; however, some concentrations will require more than two electives or require specific classes in that area of concentration. Students can take eight courses beyond the core and therefore could have multiple concentrations although only one appears on the official transcript

Total Electives = 24 credits

Note: Not all electives are available in all campuses. Please contact your primary campus to find out about electives and concentrations offered in that campus.

Independent Studies

Students can take up to nine credits of electives as Independent Studies. Independent Studies can range from work-related projects at the student’s respective company to participation in faculty research to consulting projects with UConn centers or institutes.
