NOTE: All IDEV courses offered which are not listed above are acceptable electives for the IDEV coordinate major. Many of the IDEV 4000 level courses are considered “Special Topics courses” and the Registrar’s Office does not list Special Topics courses in the acceptable list of electives. Due to the fact that they are not on the acceptable list, students will need to complete a degree audit substitution form to make these courses flow properly on their audits.
