Independent Study

Independent Study affords junior- and senior- standing students an opportunity to independently undertake special research-oriented projects extending above and beyond the parameters of the curriculum.

Students may apply up to 4 Elective credits to Independent Study. Students interested in pursuing Independent Study are required to submit a proposal in writing to the Dean of Instruction outlining: the project scope; objectives; time frame for completion; and their preferred faculty advisor.

Upon approval, students are required to sign a contract with their advisor agreeing to complete the project. A letter grade is issued based upon completion of projected objectives within the proposed timeframe.

The Word

“The CJC provides some of the most in depth study of jazz out there. A core curriculum of not two, but four semesters of jazz ear training and hands on jazz theoryand improvisation, culminating in transcription and analysis of the greatest jazz artists of all time. The teachers are wonderful, organized and communicate concepts in a way that clearly transforms each and every student.”
