Independent study allows students the opportunity to pursue special interests not treated in regularly scheduled courses. A faculty member, who becomes the student's instructor for the course, must approve the student's program of study and agree to provide continuing supervision of the work.
- If it is a course that will count towards completion of the PMA major/minor, students must complete a PMA Independent Study proposal form. Once the proposal is approved by the Director of Undergraduate Studies, students must fill out the A&S Independent Study enrollment form.
- If it is a course that will NOT count towards completion of the PMA major/minor, students should complete the A&S Independent Study enrollment form in consultation with the faculty member who will serve as the instructor of the course.
Please note that the PMA deadline for fall term Independent Study application is the previous April 30, and the PMA deadline for spring term Independent Study application is the previous November 30.
