ANTH 095. Independent Study

All students wishing to do independent work must have the advance consent of the department and of an instructor who agrees to supervise the proposed project. Two options exist for students wishing to get credit for independent work.
Option 1 - consists of individual or group directed reading and study in fields of special interest to the students not dealt with in the regular course offerings.
Option 2 - credit may be received for practical work in which direct experience lends itself to intellectual analysis and is likely to contribute to a student's progress in regular course work. Students must demonstrate to the instructor and the department a basis for the work in previous academic study. Students will normally be required to examine pertinent literature and produce a written report to receive credit.
0.5 or 1 credit.
