Independent Study

A student must complete 6 credits of coursework prior to enrollment in an independent study course. A master's degree student may accumulate no more than 6 credits in independent study toward the completion of the degree. During the semester prior to enrollment in an independent study, a student must obtain the approval of a faculty member who agrees to supervise the independent study. The student must complete an independent study form (available in the SCJ Office of Academic Programs and Student Services) that describes his or her coursework for the semester. In addition, the student must attach the preliminary syllabus for the independent study describing learning goals, readings, and the grading policy. The SCJ form must be signed by the student and the supervising faculty member.
