Independent Study

Pursuing an independent study program is a great way to explore a topic of particular interest while earning academic credit. The best way to arrange an independent study is to begin talking to professors who study topics about which you’re interested in learning more. Once you have found a professor to work with, and have decided on a topic, submit an independent study application to the department so that you can receive credit for the course.
