Indicative program for students that first enrolled from the academic year 2017-18 onwards

It includes the distribution of courses in eight semesters of study, the required hours of teaching per week for each course and the corresponding credit units. It indicates the logical course of study. The course IDs of obligatory, elective and optional courses end with the letter ‘Y’, ‘E’ or Π, respectively. The Indicative Program includes certain elective courses that are not currently taught by members of the faculty staff of the Democritus University of Thrace.
