Undergraduate and graduate students may take independent study that encompasses individual research, readings, study, or other activities with a faculty member. In an independent study experience, you will essentially create your own course on a topic of your choice, working in concert with a faculty member.

If you are looking for an opportunity to try research or explore a topic in more depth you may wish to consider doing an independent study under faculty supervision. Faculty may have you assist with research projects, or help guide your study on a topic of mutual interest.
