Independent Study is an opportunity, primarily for advanced undergraduate majors and graduate students, to earn academic credit studying individually with one or more members of the regular faculty of the Linguistics department. Independent Study may be used to fulfill elective hours in the undergraduate major or toward a graduate degree. It may not be used to fulfill MAPS or Core curriculum requirements. It is also not intended to be used by students to take a regular course not being offered that term, or to ‘fill out’ a schedule in a particular term. Find out more about independent study.
