The Department of History offers an “Integrated Curriculum of Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree.” This curriculum enables students to complete connected courses for a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree. Students can choose one of the two tracks depending on the graduation types of the bachelor’s course: early graduation track and regular graduation track. Students are expected to apply for this curriculum at the end of each semester.
Types of Tracks
- Early Graduation Track: early graduation of the bachelor’s course (registration in the 7th semester) and the graduate school (master’s course and/or integrated course of master’s and doctoral degrees)
- Regular Graduation Track: normal graduation of the bachelor’s course (registration after the 8th semester) and the graduate school (master’s course and/or integrated course of master’s and doctoral degrees)
- Early Graduation Track: GPA over 3.50 for all semesters
- Regular Graduation Track: GPA over 3.00 for all semesters
- Admission Process: Students recommended by the department dean will be reviewed by the college dean for admission.
- There are no limits on the number of admissions.
- Exemption of a graduation thesis for the bachelor’s degree
- Admission to the graduate school without an entrance exam
- Opportunity to take classes of the graduate school in the last semester of the undergraduate course
What to Submit
- Application form for the integrated curriculum of the bachelor’s and master’s degree
Advanced Special Students
- Advanced special students are eligible to take the graduate school classes in the last semester of the undergraduate course; the graduate classes will be limited up to six credits.
- Shared credits up to six will be allowed, including the points of team research added to the common subjects of the master’s/doctoral course.
Requirements for Track Completion and Change of Track
- Students in the early graduation track need to earn over 3.50 (GPA) each semester until they complete their undergraduate course. Otherwise, they will be disqualified for the early graduation track and will be required to register for the remaining semester(s) to graduate.
- The integrated curriculum of the bachelor’s and master’s degree will still be effective for those students who are disqualified for the early graduation track if they don’t discontinue.
- If students in the regular graduation track need to take more semesters for their graduation, the integrated curriculum will be cancelled and the special advantages will be removed automatically.
Withdrawal of the Integrated Curriculum
- The credits that students have already obtained in the graduate school will not be allowed as the shared credits for the integrated course. Therefore, those students must clearly notify their intention to the school administration office when they want to withdraw their application to the integrated curriculum.
- If students withdraw their application to the integrated curriculum, they must prepare the graduate thesis and pass the graduate evaluation of the undergraduate course.
- If those students still want to enter the graduate school as a regular graduate students, they have to take the entrance exam.
