SEM Concentrations

In addition to completing eight SYSM courses, interested students take four courses listed within a specified concentration area shown below; note that some concentration areas have required courses.  Because it is possible to “customize” a concentration area, a student may substitute courses within the concentration areas listed below (with prior approval), or may construct an entirely different concentration area (consisting of four graduate courses) provided that the focus is systems-related (prior approval must be obtained before courses are taken).
