1 - 3
With permission of department.
Advisory Prerequisites:
WOMENSTD 240 and one additional Women's Studies course.
May be elected six times for credit.

This course provides students with the opportunity to receive course credit for conducting their own research under the supervision of a Women's Studies faculty member or for working with a Women's Studies professor on a pre-existing research project. More specifically, students may develop a critical analysis of a set of readings or follow a research plan that includes collecting, analyzing, and interpreting original data. Students are responsible for finding a Women's Studies faculty member who will sponsor their independent course work.

Intended audience: This opportunity is targeted for advanced students who may wish to gain research experience in a faculty member's area of expertise without meeting the requirements of a double major or conducting an honors thesis in Women's Studies.

Course Requirements: A final written report that details the student's independent research is required.

Class Format: Students are expected to work 3 hours per week for each credit hour.
