A student may pursue independent readings and research under the direction of a faculty mentor, culminating in a written report or project. Independent studies may be taken for up to three (3) credit hours to fulfill an elective or major project requirement for the master’s degree. Please speak with a faculty member with whom you are acquainted to propose a subject matter and course outline.
In order to receive authorization to enroll for credit, please complete the Independent Study Request form with an approved project proposal. Once received, our office will grant permission to enroll in the appropriate course for the term and notify you via email.
