Q: How do I take an outside elective?
A: M.S. students are encouraged to make use of the greater Columbia University course offerings to further their knowledge base in areas of particular interest and relevance to their journalistic goals. Classes (except for languages) must be graduate level and must be approved by the Dean of Students office.
M.A. students are required to take outside electives each semester. Classes must be graduate level and must be approved by your discipline professor.

Please note that M.S. students must complete our course preference balloting and registration process with the intention of taking all your classes at the Journalism School (since cross-registrations aren’t always possible, you should carefully complete your ballot). Registration for outside courses is a function of add/drop.
