Independent Study

English 399 is designed to permit students to explore material not normally taught in courses or to undertake a project not provided for within the department's regular curriculum. Other options should be exhausted before considering an independent study.

With the approval of the student's faculty adviser and the Director of Undergraduate Studies, any undergraduate, including non-majors, may pursue a program of individual study leading usually to the writing of a paper or the production of a creative work. The amount of credit one may earn for independent study is variable, up to a maximum of 8 hours.
