Independent Study Information 2022-2023

Non-departmental credit is awarded for independent studies completed under the supervision of a member of the faculty or other qualified advisor. The purpose of these studies is to allow students to engage in work outside of the standard curriculum in an area of special interest. Students first check with their school counselor and then complete an Independent Study Application.

Independent studies may include creative projects, working as a teaching assistant, or academic research. The committee will review applications and approve, deny, or suggest modifications based on the educational merit of the proposal. Please note that the Committee will be considering student commitment to follow through on the Independent Study. Since spaces are limited, the quality and timeliness of your written proposal counts. Independent studies may be a year or semester long in duration, but no less.

For more information please view the application.
