Independent Reading

Course Description

1-3 credits. An independent reading must be proposed to, and approved and supervised by a full-time faculty member. Professors are not required to take on any student for an independent reading and may be more inclined in cases where the student defines her or his interest in a subject fairly precisely. Students must submit a reading list and agree to specific due dates for assignments with the faculty member supervising the independent reading. Once approved for an independent reading by a faculty member, students must email for registration procedures.


Approval of the faculty member with whom the student will study and of the student's program adviser.
