Waiver of Required Courses
Students in all programs may petition to the Graduate Academic Standing Committee for waivers of required courses in consultation with the convener or director of the program. Waivers might be approved based on prior coursework, work experience, or a self-designed and specialized emphasis in a student’s coursework. Approved waivers do not lower the number of credits required for a degree. Students who have completed the C.M.H. at Drew who matriculate into the M.A. in Medical Humanities, Health, and Society or the D.M.H. are automatically waived from completing the same courses in the new degree. See the section on Coursework in Other Drew Degree Programs for more information.
