and International Monetary Theory to balance attendance in various sections of the same course 2 What is Round One of bidding and what is Round Two Round one of bidding is limited to a select few

are deducted if a student is unsuccessful Students who registered for courses that went to bid but did not submit a bid are treated as having bid zero points If two or more students have the same bid at the cut off of enrollment then a lottery is used to determine which of these students will be enrolled in the class Students who bid more than their available points will not gain entry to the class To bid on more than one course you must access the bid form separately for each bid If the total number of points you bid for all bids exceeds your total bid point balance all of your bids will

fall semester to gain entrance to a class That student currently has 1000 100 400 700 points available to bid Example 2 An MIPP student who has completed one semester at SAIS was assigned 1100 points upon entry to the MIPP program That student bid 200 points during that first semester to gain entry to a class but was not successful Therefore this student did not use those 200 points and still has the 1100 points available for future bids Example 3 A second year student attended her first year at the SAIS Bologna Center That student did not bid on any courses in Bologna during her tenure As an MA3 student she has 1000 100 100 1200 points available to bid this semester Example 4 A student enters SAIS as an MA1 and during his second semester he is accepted to a dual degree program Upon entering his third semester he is now an MA4 BALANCED ENROLLMENT ECONOMICS CLASSES The foundation economics classes of Microeconomics Macroeconomics International Trade Theory and International Monetary Theory are generally offered in multiple sections each semester The goal is to have relatively balanced enrollment between the sections of the same course Bidding may be necessary to preserve balance in enrollments If balancing is necessary then bidding will occur in Round 1 Any foundation economics class that goes to bid for the purpose of balancing enrollment will have an enrollment limit set across all sections and any section that meets that limit will be closed to further enrollments Historical Bidding Reports NOTE Clearing prices for past terms are provided so that students can see the relationship between clearing price and excess demand for a course section Past results do not represent a specific bid amount that will ensure entry into a class Clearing prices vary from

Center and Washington DC Non Degree Courses What is the Student to Faculty Ratio 17 1 I have no background in Economics Is that going to hurt my chances of getting into the SAIS MA program We receive strong applications from MA candidates who have not taken any courses in economics Some of these candidates are offered conditional admission to SAIS and are required to fulfill the introductory micro and macroeconomics prerequisites prior to enrolling in the program An applicant who has completed introductory micro and macroeconomics will also have an advantage over an otherwise equally qualified applicant who has not Students must complete one semester s worth of study in both introductory macroeconomics and in microeconomics with a B or higher prior to beginning classes at SAIS but not necessarily prior to admission The Admissions Committee will consider applicants who have not yet fulfilled this requirement Nevertheless these applicants should recognize that they will be expected to complete the required course work before entry and plan accordingly Prior course work in mathematics and or statistics is also encouraged Can I attend SAIS part time SAIS offers only full time degree programs We strongly feel that in order for students to maximize their SAIS experience they need to take full advantage of the numerous academic and social offerings that are available This includes participating in co curricular activities attending special workshops lectures and guest speakers on campus If interested you can consider taking part time non degree courses offered through our Part Time and Non Degree Office 112 Does SAIS offer dual degree programs Yes SAIS currently offers a Dual Degree program of study option for students interested in pursuing a second graduate degree in conjunction with their studies in international relations Approximately 10 of our students pursue a dual degree in business law public administration and public health to enhance their graduate education and achieve their professional objectives To be admitted to any of the dual degree programs students must apply to and be accepted by both schools independently For those accepted to dual degree programs SAIS reduces the number of required courses from 16 to 12 in recognition of course work taken at another approved school This allows students to complete the SAIS MA degree in three academic semesters instead of four A list of dual degree options at SAIS can be found here 113 Are there other academic partnerships that SAIS offers Yes We have several cooperative degree programs offered only at SAIS Europe master s students from European partner universities can study one year at their home program and one year at SAIS Europe obtaining the MAIA degree or the diploma in International Studies plus a master s degree from their home university A list of the cooperative degree programs available at SAIS Europe can be viewed here 113 Can I pursue a dual degree with a school that is not listed Students may create an ad hoc dual degree program of study non formal program with other prominent universities Proposals for ad hoc dual degrees are possible but must be approved by the Office of Academic Affairs NOTE Only top ranked professional schools will be considered for ad hoc dual degrees FAQs Admissions Information What prerequisites are required to apply or enroll All incoming MA students are required to complete introductory microeconomics and introductory macroeconomics courses receiving a grade of B or higher before they can start course work at Johns Hopkins SAIS The microeconomics course should cover the principles of supply demand equilibrium and marginal analysis The macroeconomics course should cover national income inflation unemployment and

transcripts must be submitted to the Admissions Office as soon as the courses are completed and before the applicant starts any course work including Pre term Admitted candidates who have not satisfied the basic economics requirements can fulfill them during the summer before classes start SAIS offers an online course in basic microeconomics and macroeconomics to enable these candidates to
