Only one elective course in my first semester

I’ve tried not too think too much about the intense coursework that I have in store for me, partially out of fear and partially out of a desire to enjoy my few weeks of freedom between work and school. But, with just one week of freedom left before orientation starts, it’s time to start getting my head in the game.

Luckily (or not so luckily, depending on how you choose to think about it), I will only have one elective course in my first semester, which will be primarily taken up by math and economics classes (see chart below) that are meant to give me a solid quantitative base.

SIPA recommends that I choose an elective course that falls into one of these categories:

  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
  • Cost Benefit Analysis
  • New Media & Development Communication
  • Decision Models
  • Microfinance
  • Investing in Emerging Markets
  • Budgeting for Non-profits

I’m leaning toward New Media and Development Communication because it’s the subject area that most compliments my past experience and future goals, but I want to know what you think. Vote in my poll to let me know.
