This option is appropriate for degree students who want access to independent faculty supervision, lab areas, and supplies for independent projects, and do not need or desire extensive course instruction. This option is justified only if 1) the project content cannot be covered in an existing course, 2) the student's department deems it of substantive value to the student's educational goals and interests, and 3) the project work will be done outside of regularly scheduled class time.All directed studies are for credit (one to three credits). Students cannot take more than three credits of directed studies per semester. Students enrolled in directed studies will have access to the facilities and equipment at times arranged by the instructor. To enroll, students must submit a Directed Studies Contract that is available at the Office of the Registrar and obtain written permission from the instructor and the chair or program director of the student's department and when different, the course department. The directed studies instructor will be responsible for working with the student to establish project goals, oversee progress, and determine final course grades. Bachelor's Foundation students and Continuing Education students are not eligible for directed studies. Under certain circumstances, directed studies may be pursued by graduate students by combining participation in an advanced undergraduate course with extra independent assignments at the graduate level, as arranged in advance with the directed studies instructor.
