ASAP Communiqué

…for students in the IMAS and IDAS programs at NCCU.

change of credit point requirement in IDAS

Did everyone get that email from Dr. Holm? It read, in part:

At its meeting tomorrow, the IDAS Executive Committee will be considering the possibility of lowering the total number of credit points IDAS students need for graduation. The current total is 33 points.
As you may be aware, NCCU is currently in the process of reforming its teaching and reducing teaching loads. The main focus is on undergraduate education, but the University is currently allowing MA and PhD programs also to reduce the number of required credit points. 
So, the question is, are you in favour of:
(1) the status quo (no change)
(2) a marginal reduction in total credit points required (say down to 30 or 27)
(3) a substantial reduction in total credit points (24 or lower)
Please post your opinions — and any news about this issue.
Cheers,
Dean
