Independent study in CSD is intended to provide students with deeper knowledge in specific sub-fields within the CSD. The knowledge gained is not typically provided in individual classes. The purpose of independent study credits is for students to engage with research topics.
Permission of a faculty member is required.
For 2 or 3 credits, a student will contact a professor in CSD and ask to either be involved in conducting research in a lab, or conduct an independent reading project during the semester. Each credit requires 3 hours/week commitment.
