At least 30 percent of the credits (a minimum of 54/180) must be obtained from formal course-work. Please see list of Recommended Electives. As required by the JGSBS, students must earn 20 credits/semester. If the coursework credits do not equal 20, students must add the necessary Research credits.

Upon completion of the Year 2 / Spring II semester, students must complete the Comprehensive Exam requirement (see Comprehensive Exam Guidelines)
