 RELATED ELECTIVES:

Only one related elective course will count towards the 3 required electives.  Such courses are either freestanding -- i.e., they don’t need to be paired with a core elective course (E.g., Medical Anthropology), or they must be paired with a core elective in order to count (e.g., Health Economics should be paired with a core elective like Justice & Health Care).  If in doubt, contact the Program Director.
