Directed Research/Reading


Many departments offer the opportunity to earn academic credit for study or research on topics not covered by regular courses. The student works with a faculty member, who directs and monitors the learning process according to a plan of study submitted with the course application.

The student must be Junior standing or above, with at least a 3.00 cumulative grade point average, and obtain approval of the faculty member and the relevant department chairperson and academic dean. Not more than two courses in a semester, and 16 credits total, of directed research/reading courses may be counted toward graduation requirements. Any directed research/reading course required for the student’s major or minor is not subject to the 3.00 cumulative grade point average limitation. Application forms are available from the Registrar’s Office.
