Through course registration, students register for courses they wish to take and at the same time confirm their academic intentions. Students who do not complete course registration during the designated period will be deemed as having no intentions to continue studying and be expelled from the university (Graduate School Regulations, Article 161).
If students plan to take a temporary leave of absence without registering for courses, they must submit an "Application for Temporary Leave of Absence" by the last day of the course registration period.
Master's Program Curriculum
The master's program consists of the following course categories.
In principle, two-credit courses are held once a week (one period: 90 minutes) and four-credit courses are held twice a week (two periods: 180 minutes). Please refer to the syllabus for the number of credits.

Procedure for Course Registration
Course registration for the 2021 academic year is divided into Course Registration Period (First) and Course Registration Period (Second).
[Course Registration Period (First)]
Students wishing to take courses offered by other faculties or graduate schools should register for them during Course Registration Period (First). (For courses with student screenings, such as courses offered at the undergraduate level, screening results will be announced to students after the Course Registration Period (First) is over.)
Students can register for courses offered by the Graduate School of Media and Governance during this period as well.
Students must apply for the screening to register for Program Courses (held in parallel with the faculties) / courses for undergraduate at SFC that have restrictions on registration besides Course Registration.
* Students need a CNS account for application. Students who graduate from Faculty of Policy Management or Faculty of Environment and Information Studies in March should apply for it after the new CNS account is available.
Please refer to "About Registration (for undergraduate): Student Screening" for details.
[Course Registration Period (Second)]
During this period, students should finish registering for all courses that they plan to take during the semester. Courses that were registered for during the Course Registration Period (First) but are not permitted to be taken will be shown as "Not Permitted," and students will not be able to take them.
Please refer to "Master's and Doctoral Program: Academic Calendar" for details.
Students can make changes to registration for courses as many times as they like during the course registration period. Students should give themselves plenty of time to complete course registration and ask the Academic Affairs Office via e-mail during this period if they have any questions.

Cautions Regarding Course Registration
Please refer to the Timetable for "Registration Number". Be careful to note that "Registration Number" is different from "Curriculum Code" on the Syllabus.
Students may check the syllabus for information on class plans, grading criteria, etc., for each course. Please refer to the syllabus for details of when and where the first meeting of the "Academic Project" course will be held.
A maximum of 10 transferred credits earned from courses offered by other graduate schools may be certified as credits required for completing the master's program. However, some courses restrict the registration of students from other graduate schools. Please check the following website:
- "Subjects for Students for Other Faculties and Graduate Schools"
Year-long courses and Spring Semester courses that are offered by other graduate schools, faculties, research institutes, or centers must be registered for during the Spring Semester Course Registration Period. When registering for courses offered by other faculties or graduate schools, make sure to register for them after obtaining permission of the faculty member in charge of the course.
Please note that students enrolled in their final semester are not allowed to register for courses offered by Graduate School of Business Administration held in the third term.
The courses below that were allowed to be conducted during university holidays must be registered within the semester following the break in which students did fieldwork or had an internship. (These courses cannot be cancelled.)
