Strategic Approaches for Selecting an Interdisciplinary Course Selection

When choosing my ID course I considered whether or not I could handle the class, if I had the prerequisites, and if it would fit my schedule. I chose SOC 2401ID Society, Technology and Self and I took my ID class in the summer.

An Explanation of “Elective Classes Allowed”

I wasn’t sure what exactly elective credits are. I thought they were the classes that had to be chosen from specific categories but we still had the freedom to choose what we want. I didn’t know they were classes where we were able to choose any type of class. An academic advisor explained to me that these classes can be from my major to learn more about a specialty in the Hospitality industry or any other course.
