Electives: Spring, Fall 2017 and permanent

HRI Minor Electives

As of Spring 2017, a separate list of HRI Minor electives will no longer be published for each semester of the academic year. Instead, students may choose from the expanded list of permanent HRI Minor electives below, which may be counted for HRI Minor credit in any semester in which they are taken. Also beginning in Spring 2017 (and affecting students graduating in Spring 2017 and after), students are longer required to satisfy separate Humanities and Social Science elective requirements; rather, they may choose any three of the below courses (in addition to the core course and thesis workshop) to meet HRI Minor requirements.
