Independent study is intended for advanced students interested in doing independent research on special study topics. To be eligible, a student must demonstrate to the department chairperson the competence to do independent study. To apply for Independent Studies, the student is required, in a petition that may be obtained from the department chair, to state objectives to be achieved, activities and procedures to accomplish the study project, and the means by which the supervising instructor may assess accomplishment. Please see department listing for details. A maximum of six units of independent studies is allowed. Granting of UC transfer credit for an Independent Studies course is contingent upon an evaluation of the course outline by a UC campus.
