Independent Study forms should be returned to the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Courtney Muse, along with a 1-2 page written description of the project details.  Please include the following information in your write up:

  1. Describe the nature of the project and what it is that you will be doing throughout the semester
  2. Indicate how often you will be meeting with your faculty sponsor (this can vary according to the nature of the project and faculty preferences)
  3. Outline how your work will be assessed (i.e., will you turn in one big paper at the end of the semester; will you be graded on the basis of multiple shorter assignments, etc.)
