Special Research 1A・1B・2A・2B・1Ai・1Bi

Research guidance on master’s research is provided by research supervisors. The research advisor consists of one main research supervisor (hereinafter referred to as “main advisor”) and two secondary research supervisors (hereinafter referred to as “secondary advisors”), each of whom is qualified to provide research guidance. However, until the primary advisor is determined, the interim advisor, determined during enrollment, will serve as the research advisor.
The responsibility for research guidance rests with the primary research advisor, and the final evaluation is made by the primary and secondary advisors, who are selected from the secondary advisors. Special Research 1A and 1B correspond to the first year of the standard course, Special Research 2A and 2B correspond to the second year of the standard course, and Special Research 1Ai and 1Bi correspond to the short-term course respectively. All “A” courses are offered during the first semester and their corresponding B courses are all in the second semester.
In order to receive credit for this course, students must actively seek research guidance in seminars and individual meetings, as well as hold special meetings with multiple faculty members each semester to explain their research intentions, content, progress, etc., and receive feedback and advice thereupon.
