A student pursuing an independent study is able to pursue some special area of interest that is beyond the scope of current course offerings at D’Youville.
Seniors and juniors who have a cumulative average of at least 3.0 are eligible. Exceptions may be possible through petition if the cumulative average is at least 2.5.
The 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 479 (fall offering) or 480 (spring offering) and the initials IS (e.g., ENG-479-IS). The title will reflect the course content.
The student must complete a written proposal of the study and obtain the approvals as indicated on the independent study form available in the Office of the Registrar.
