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.
