An independent study is a collaboration between a student and a faculty member on a special project that provides the student with a learning experience. An independent study may also fill an academic need of importance to the student that cannot be filled by the regular course offerings. Independent studies are opportunities for students to earn credit for learning outside the normal lecture and laboratory class structure.
If you are interested in pursuing an independent study you must first secure a faculty sponsor. Review the following memorandum below to find a faculty sponsor.
