With an independent study course, the History Department offers students the opportunity to work under the direction of a faculty member to pursue a topic that is not covered (or not covered in sufficient depth) by regularly scheduled department courses. Types of independent study may vary, but typically students will be expected to complete a research project. Students intersted in pursuing an independent study course must first find a faculty member willing to supervise their independent study course. A student must then fill out the Independent Study Approval Form with their faculty supervisor. With approval from the Director of Undergraduate Studies, the student will then be enrolled in a 4000-level course.
