Why not devote 1-credit to wellness? One recommendation from the College of Engineering Mental Health Roundtable is NURSING 5115 MINDSTRONG -- an Evidence-based Program to Reduce Stress and Promote Overall Well-being. Other course ideas and degree enhancements may be discovered by exploring graduate minors and specialization areas. A comprehensive list of interdisciplinary specialization and certificate programs is maintained by the Graduate School, with options including African American and African StudiesCollege and University Teaching, Rural SociologyBiomedical Clinical and Translational Science, and Disability Studies -- or simply try some courses in Humanitarian Engineering. For courses and competitions aimed at business and commercialization, be sure to check out the Center for Entrepreneurship of the Fisher College of Business.
