A student pursuing an independent study is able to delve into some special area of interest that is beyond the scope of current course offerings at D’Youville.
Graduate students in good standing with a minimum cumulative G.P.A. of 3.0 and successful completion of at least 12 graduate credit-hours at D’Youville College are eligible.
The graduate student undertaking such a project should have an appropriate background preparation in the subject.
Independent study courses will be designated by the discipline code letters, the numerals 679 (fall offering) or 680 (spring offering) and the initials IS, e.g., NUR-679-IS. The title will reflect the course content. The graduate student must complete a written proposal of the study and obtain the approvals as indicated on the independent study application form for graduate students available in the Office of Graduate Studies.
