INDEPENDENT STUDY: ELC 750/850

The purpose of independent study is to provide interested students with an opportunity to collaborate with faculty on research or specialty projects. The interested student meets with the appropriate faculty member, and the student and faculty determine the nature and scope of the project to be completed. In collaboration the student and the faculty member design the course, the scope of the work, specific assignments, methods of evaluation, timeline, and assessments. Prior to starting the project/course, the student and the faculty member complete the Independent Study Form and submit the completed form to the appropriate Department Chair for approval. Once approved by the appropriate Department Chair, the completed form is subsequently submitted to the Office of Academic Affairs for final approval. Once final approval has been granted, the form will be sent to the Office of the Registrar to officially enroll the student in the course.
