Independent Study Courses

An independent study course in the Department of Historical Studies involves working on an individual research project in an area of interest to the student, which is supervised by a faculty member with expertise in the relevant area. These courses are primarily intended for students enrolled in a Specialist, or Major program. Students must find an appropriate supervisor, obtain approval from him/her for the project, and submit a completed Registration Form to the office in Historical Studies (North Building, 4th floor). Only one full credit (1.0) Independent Study course or two half credit (0.5) Independent Study courses are permitted.
