Aside from the scheduled course electives that are usually worth 1 - 3 units, students may choose to complete the 42 unit graduation requirement with electives that are not part of regular course offerings:
The maximum course load per semester is 9 units, unless exceptional approval is granted by the program office.
Students who matriculate prior to Fall 2014 are allowed to take between 42 and 44 units total in the program. Students who matriculate in Fall 2014 and later are allowed to take a maximum of 46 units. Students may choose to take extra units above 42 only in the final semester. Students cannot extend their enrollment past the semester in which they earn their 42nd unit.

Note: This policy is for current students only, and is intended for a student who may need to be out of the Bay Area for a short time. Transfer units for incoming students are not accepted.
A master's student may transfer up to 4 semester units or 6 quarter units of course work completed as a graduate student at another institution. The units must be equivalent to courses in the student's graduate program at Berkeley, and the student must have received at least a B in the course(s) and have a grade-point average of at least 3.3 at both Berkeley and the other institution. However, students cannot use units from another institution to satisfy the minimum unit requirement in 200 series courses or the minimum academic residence requirement. In addition, they may not present course work previously used to satisfy requirements for another degree program at Berkeley or at another in another insitution.
The Graduate Division may approve credit for more than 4 semester or 6 quarter units of 200-level courses completed on another UC campus, and will review requests on an individual basis.
