Curriculum Structure

The goal of the curriculum

GIST College offers a diverse and rich curriculum focusing on the "3Cs and 1P." This consists of an intensive course of study of basic sciences and engineering as well as an extensive course of liberal arts, which give an understanding of the values and traditions of our society. These two together will be a foundation for our students to become innovative future scientists and engineers.

Concentrations

GIST College applies the term “concentration” to its courses of study instead of “major” to highlight that these courses include not only specialized classes but also to emphasize flexibility for collaborative and interdisciplinary education and research. Restriction on credits in a Concentration required for graduation: GIST College restricts the number of credits taken within a concentration to ensure that students receive an interdisciplinary and well-rounded education by taking a variety of courses. Students are able to take electives from among courses in other concentrations or among graduate courses. Students who have selected a concentration are still able to take electives in liberal arts and sciences. Students with declared concentrations should take “GIST College Concentration Seminars” which are designed to give them exposure to academic knowledge outside of their usual course content.

  • GIST College Concentration Seminars (Required, not for credit): After declaring a concentration.
  • Grades will be marked on a pass/fail basis; either “S” for satisfactory or “U” for unsatisfactory.

Research (6 credits or more, Undergraduates in 2015 and after)

  • Undergraduate Thesis Research (6 credits, required): 3 credits per semester. Taken in the two semesters before graduation
  • Individual Research (elective): one credit per semester.

Research (3 credits or more, Undergraduates in 2010~2014)

  • Undergraduate Thesis Research (3 credits, required)
  • Individual Research (0-2, elective): one credit per semester, maximum of two semesters.

Minors and Dual concentrations

  • Minors: Students must complete 15 credits or more in a concentration or education program other than his or her main concentration, including fulfillment of any specific course requirements for completion of the course of study as a minor.
  • Dual concentrations: Not available at this time

Qualifications for declaring a concentration

  • Students must have completed 60 credits or more, or the equivalent of four full semesters (spring and fall).
  • Students must have completed the specific prerequisites to declare a concentration.
