Students may take up to 6 elective credit hours from other departments or colleges as part of the MLISc degree requirements if they are relevant to their area of interest and are approved in advance by an adviser. Students would need to satisfy all the prerequisites for the respective courses.
Not all courses are appropriate; some useful courses may not be available because departments usually give priority to their own students within the limits of available faculty and facilities.
