The head of department reserves the right to prescribe any additional modules/ seminars for a candidate.

A candidate must also pass a compulsory module in Research methodology (EBW 801 or any other module in Research methodology prescribed by the relevant department) if it has not been completed at master‟s level. However, the Dean may, in exceptional cases and on the recommendation of the head of department/director concerned, waive this prerequisite.
