Hi Oluchukwu, part-time/online students may use their remaining elective credits to choose an informal focus area, which is similar to our concentrations; however, part-time/online students participating in a predominantly off-campus format will not be able to elect a formal concentration since they often require onsite courses and other on-campus activities.
