In addition to the minimum credit requirement for each category mentioned above, students are required to obtain at least 30 credits from the courses which is offered by the school to which they belong.
There are courses which are listed in two different categories. In case students take those courses, the credits taken from them can be counted under each category. For example, “Macroeconomics I: Income Theory” is counted as both Core Required and Core Elective(Basic Discipline, Economics). However, only 2 credits from this course can be counted towards graduation requirements.
Note1) Although “Advanced Seminar I, II and III” are the Core Required courses and students are required to obtain 6 credits from them, only 2 of the 6 credits are counted toward graduation in the research report option while 6 credits will be counted in the thesis option.
Note2) The required number of Core Elective course credits differs depending on whether a thesis or research report is to be undertaken. In the thesis option, 6 credits must be obtained while 10 credits must be obtained in case of a research report option.
