Waivers and Substitutions
Students who have had previous, graduate-level experience in core subjects may request a waiver. If prior academic coursework qualifies them for a waiver, an additional elective may be substituted. Waivers are generally not encouraged, however, since EMTM courses may introduce tools and frameworks not covered in prior coursework.
