Can MDE students take courses outside of the GSD and SEAS?

Electives are selected in consultation with a faculty advisor or co-advisors as part of an individualized academic plan. Students in the program are required to take graduate level courses at both the SEAS and GSD, but also have freedom in cross-registering for courses beyond the two schools as guided by the program elective policy

Elective choices are flexible and allow students to complement their backgrounds, and pursue their interests and passions. The goal is for students to acquire entirely new skillsets while also diving deeper into particular subjects.
