How are core electives different from other electives?

Core electives are courses meant to run concurrently with and to complement core courses as indicated in the question above. Other electives can be taken whenever offered during the first three years, and do not run concurrently with any specific course and are not directly affiliated with any core courses. While some non-core electives may be required among options for certain focus areas, they are not required for all students like the core electives.
