Students are encouraged to use their major elective credits to complete a thematic cluster of courses relevant to their professional goals. For example, they may wish to create a cluster relevant to the type of nonprofit they currently work for or wish to pursue. For example, students who intend to work for nonprofit organizations focusing on environmental issues, might want to take environmental studies courses.
Those who intend to work for health organizations might want to take courses concerning public health . Students can also develop a cluster around serving certain communities such as Latino, African American or LGBTQ Studies. Students also have the option of taking additional courses related to nonprofit management for their major electives.
Students should work with their academic advisors to identify an appropriate cluster theme and apply the courses to their major electives and open electives. Thematic clusters can be completed through DePaul courses, transfer courses or Prior Learning Assessment (PLA). The course list below are some major elective options.
Open Electives can be fulfilled through courses taken in the School of Continuing and Professional Studies and other DePaul colleges, transfer courses, assessment of prior learning (PLA), and independent studies.
