You will find a complete list of semester course offerings on the Schedule of Courses (SOC).
Please see the Registration Timetable for when you can begin scheduling each semester.

Each Fall and Spring semester there are three core courses offered. You must schedule the core courses before selecting electives:
400- and 500-Level Courses
You will schedule 400- and 500-level elective courses on eLion.
Introduction to Research Design (INTAF – 3 crs) is recommended as a first-year course for all M.I.A. degree candidates.
Up to nine (9) credits of law (900-level) courses may be applied to the M.I.A. degree. To register for law courses you will send an e-mail to email@example.com indicating what law elective course(s) you would like to enroll in. You should include the course title, code, and number in your e-mail. You will find this information on the semester SIA Electives Course List. The Law School Registrar will communicate with you regarding your enrollment in the law course(s) you have chosen.
Note: The Graduate School permits law courses (900 level) and grades to appear on the graduate transcript. However, the grade is not calculated into the semester grade point average or cumulative grade point average. M.I.A. degree approved law courses (900 level), are added to the transcript total credits earned by the law school registrar.
If you see the word “Controls” in the View column on the SOC, the registration system may prevent you from scheduling the course on eLion. Please contact the department office that is listed in the pop-up message you will see.
