Interested students should contact Carla Cannizzaro for permission to enroll in ENGL 795 (Fall 2023): email@example.com
Independent Studies are a means for students to pursue in-depth study in an area not covered by the department’s regular course offerings. ENGL 795 may not count as a Capstone requirement. Because English 795 is not intended to substitute for regular courses, students desiring to register for Independent Study must submit a written proposal providing the details of their projects. Independent Study proposals should demonstrate academic rigor and supply substantive supporting documentation outlining the proposed workload, provide a list of reading materials and primary and secondary souces to be consulted. A syllabus from an existing course is NOT an acceptable substitute for this description. The proposal must also be approved in advance by a Faculty Sponsor, who is required to submit a written rationale that specifies how the Independent Study project will add value to the student’s major experience. All Indpenedent Study proposals are reviewed by the English Department Chair and faculty appropriate to the proposed project.
How to register for an Independent Study:
To register for an Independent Study, you must submit a written proposal in the semester prior to when the independent study will be undertaken. The purpose of the proposal is to provide specific and detailed information about how you will earn academic credits. Visit the main English Department office (Ham Smith 230F) to pick up an Independent Study proposal form.
