Expert committees in the social sciences, science, nursing/health science/acupuncture and moxibustion, engineering/design, and fisheries conducted reviews (consisting of a thesis and oral examination) of applicants for the conferment of a master’s degree who had completed the following programs in March and April 2016: a master’s-equivalent course in the Graduate School of Science and Engineering at the National Defense Academy; a master’s-equivalent course in the Graduate School of Security Studies at the National Defense Academy; a course in the Graduate School of Fisheries Science at the National Fisheries University; and a master’s-equivalent program in the Training Center for Nursing Development at the National College of Nursing.
