Elective Courses: The Third Curricular Component

The third component of the Wilkes University Curriculum, after the General Education Requirements and the Major, is composed of Elective Courses. Students choose elective courses for a variety of reasons: to complete a minor area of study, a concentration area, a second major, or a second degree; to pursue a special area of interest; to meet requirements for admission to graduate or professional schools; or to enhance, refine, and further develop specific skills.
