Sample Electives

CMBS-MS may select courses from any program within GPILS. Some courses in other professional schools on campus and schools in the University of Maryland System may be acceptable for enrollment, but students must seek the approval of the program director prior to registering for any courses outside of GPILS.

Please check the current listing of courses offered each semester in SURFS. Other listings may not be up to date. If you have any questions about a course, please contact the course director.

Elective courses will be selected according to each student’s area of focus. They should form a coherent program of study to help each student prepare for their post-graduation goals.
