                                             Research Proposal (APS / ICP)
 All students planning to write a Master’s Thesis must submit a research proposal for approval before beginning research. Those who plan to submit a
 Research Report are also highly encouraged to submit a proposal, although submission is not required. Submissions should be typed, not handwritten.

 NOTE: Typically, the Research Proposal is submitted when the student registers for Research Project II (2nd Semester); HOWEVER those who intend to
 complete their studies in 1 year (incl. Indonesia Linkage Program) and those in the Contemporary Japan Studies Program should submit their proposal in the
 1st semester, when registered for Research Project I. See the Research Proposal Q&A on the Graduate homepage for details.
