Independent study courses provide students with the opportunity to further explore a topic they became interested in through a class or outside readings or to develop a research topic or area of interest. Independent study courses are initiated by the student and pursued with the guidance of a Women’s Studies faculty member.
Students interested in doing an independent study should have the necessary background to work in their interest area and a project that has been well thought out before a prospective faculty sponsor is contacted.
Independent study credit will not be granted for work that can be done through a regular course; nor more than three credit hours of independent study may be counted toward a Women’s Studies major or minor. Please see the independent study guidelines and application form for more information.
