System of Required and Optional Courses
Over the course of your studies, you will be required to earn 120 credits. Of those, 66 come from required courses in our department. The other necessary credits can come from the core courses and also from optional courses.
Each year you have a different number of courses that are required. In addition to these required subjects, you have two other kinds of courses you need to take: Compulsory-Optional Courses and courses related to your Master's Thesis.
Additionally, there are prerequisite courses that you must pass in order to progress through your studies.
During your bachelor studies, you will have to complete at least three of these courses (that is the compulsory part). Which subjects you choose is up to you (that is the optional part), and you are welcome to participate in more than three if you have the time and interest.
You can see a list of the courses on offer on the page Offered Optional Courses. Note that you are able to start taking these kinds of courses beginning in your first semester.
Master's Thesis Courses
All students must begin taking courses related to their master's thesis beginning in their second semester. In the second semester, there is the course DPP_AJ Master's Thesis Project. In the fifth semester, there is the course DP_AJ Master's Thesis. And in the sixth semester, there is the course DPD_AJ Master's Thesis Completion.
Passing each of these courses requires work with a supervisor. You can find out what our teachers are interested in supervising in IS in the application Packages of Topics (under Student). Then you can contact a potential supervisor and work out all necessary things with them.
