An independent study is designed to allow students to pursue academic topics in greater depth than the coverage of the topic in a class. It normally involves formal, academic study resulting in a substantial written paper or other final project(s). The purpose of the independent study is to enhance a student’s program of study and to further one’s personal and professional goals. An independent study is not typically used in lieu of a regularly offered course.
