    Both are grammatically correct. The second sentence puts more emphasis on the subject. – user2840286 Oct 26 '16 at 3:33
  • Stylistically I would drop the comma in the first because it further separates the verb from its subject. Grammatical either way. – Unrelated Oct 26 '16 at 5:06
  • ", and is" or "and, is" ?? @Unrelated – Shakeer Mirza Dec 26 '19 at 9:24

I have highlighted where correction is required. -> This new course is part of the new Masters degree, and it is REQUIRED if the Masters degree is approved. (Because, I don't see a situation where a Masters degree is not approved and still you worry about course work of masters degree). In case, if it is a integrated course then replace 'REQUIRED' with 'ONLY REQUIRED'.

  • Whether Roronoa Zoro was asking about grammar, idiom or vocabulary user2840286 still covered everything that mattered. I suspect dropping the "it" would be very much less likely in speech than in writing, but still, user2840286 covered everything. – Robbie Goodwin Nov 10 '16 at 19:31
