MSM Recommended Course Substitutions

04/06/2011

The CBA has proposed a revision to the MSM program which is pending university approval. A number of students have questions about courses they can take to replace courses which will no longer be offered in the future.

Students who are currently enrolled in the MSM program have the option to finish with the old curriculum or convert to the new MSM program once it is approved. Many courses offered under the old concentrations will no longer be available. To accommodate students, we have developed a list of courses that students may take as substitutes for the discontinued courses. In order to update your DARS record and keep graduation materials accurate, you will need to submit petitions for all course substitution or waiver requests.

MSM students who have never enrolled in a class prior to Summer 2011 will automatically be converted to the new MSM program. 

 

Useful Forms:

 

Once the program is approved, we will be sending updates to let you know the options available. At that time, students who wish to change to the new program should submit a program change form available online at Program Change form.
