Independent Study

A student who wishes to work on a project with a faculty member may ask that instructor to supervise an Independent Study (HI 496). A detailed plan of study, drawn up by the instructor and the student, is required. Ordinarily faculty members do not supervise Independent Studies on topics covered in regularly scheduled classes.
