An Independent Study is a course for which credit is earned through individual study under the supervision of an instructor.
If you wish to do an Independent Study and already have a particular area of interest in mind, you should contact an instructor who also has interest and experise in that field (please read the Independent Study Policies document prior to approaching a supervisor). Together, you and your instructor (who will become the Independent Study supervisor) will devise a set of course requirements on which you will be graded. The course requirements may vary depending on the nature of your proposed topic.
You can pick up an Independent Study form from the Registrar's Office (SU140) or from your Academic Advisor. This form will need to be completed by you and your supervisor and then, along with the completed Learning Plan (see the Independent Study Policies document), returned to your Academic Advisor for approval.
