A course designed by a student and an instructor which is generally taken outside the "normal" classroom setting.
Specially designed instruction in courses taught through a variety of delivery methods that complement traditional high school curricula and provide an accredited diploma.
Students enroll for independent study as a 591 course. Such study requires an application and involves tutorials, directed and independent readings and research, as well as other individualized activities designed to involve students in a learning process to fit the needs of the chosen graduate program. Generally, independent study course credit is available only for post-master's students or students with an approved plan of study. A maximum of six semester credits of independent study may be used on an approved plan of study.
students work on their own with the classroom teacher facilitating the work. It may involve one or more of the following strategies: assigned questions, computer-assisted instruction, correspondence lessons, essays, homework, learning activity packages, learning centres
One of the things that makes uni study different from high school is the expectation that you will become an independent learner. Being an independent learner means being in control of your own learning.
Independent Study consists of an individual research project of 1â€“3 credits, which investigates a problem area or topic not treated extensively in a regular course.
a long-term research study
A course or course of study that allows students to do all or part of the required work on their own.
a collaboration between a student and a faculty on a special project that provides the student with a learning experience
a course in which the credit, content and activities of the course are determined by a student in collaboration with an instructor
a course of study, a research project, a design project or some other independent activity executed for credit that is arranged with and supervised by a faculty member
a course where you and your instructor decide what you will study
a course which is initiated by the student, who then works independently toward the goals and objectives outlined by the professor on the Arranged Course form
a learning experience that allows a student opportunity for self-directed learning relating to an area of academic and/or professional interest
an in-depth research paper or project on a topic chosen by a student in consultation with a faculty member
an opportunity to study an out-of-the- ordinary topic in depth under the guidance of an IS or CS faculty member
a one-term project that counts as a course
a research project carried out under the direct supervision of a faculty member
a special research-intensive class taken to enhance your knowledge of a particular legal subject, the basics of which you already understand because you've taken an introductory course
a student-initiated experience planned to permit students to pursue an area of interest in nursing with guidance of a faculty preceptor
a two- or five-unit lower or upper division course designed by you and a faculty sponsor

A self-directed style of learning. Independent study is usually done with the help of a teacher; however, the role of the teacher is limited. The student completes various activities on his/her own time. One important goal of independent study is to teach children that there are several ways to gather information and learn things. Some gifted students have become locked into a "book learning" mode. An in-depth independent study program will stretch the gifted student into discovering new ways of researching an idea, such as conducting interviews, viewing films, and writing letters to authorities related to a topic.
Continuing Education offers classes that are not tied to semesters. Students may begin a class at any time and take up to nine months to complete the course. See Independent Study.
Self education, often using self-selected resources and driven by student interest.
These courses are offered only in the most extraordinary circumstances. In an independent study, the professor organizes the course requirements, including exams, homework, lab assignments, research and position papers, to compensate for your lack of classroom participation. As an undergraduate student, you must have a CGPA of 2.5 to request an independent study.
A method of instruction in which studies by individual students are carried on with a minimum of external guidance.
Allows a student or small group of students to pursue an area of interest related to a specific curricular area.
A method of study in which students have some freedom to design their own courses or even degree programs. Not all colleges offer this option so you will need to shop around.
Faculty-supervised individual study for advanced work in specific areas. This option is open only for juniors or seniors with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above.
All academic departments at BCDS offer the option of independent study for academic credit to students who wish to pursue a topic that lies outside of or beyond the existing curriculum. Students, usually juniors or seniors, work closely with one or more teachers in developing the course of study as well as the evaluative process.
A continuing education activity initiated and planned by the learner; then reviewed, monitored, approved by an ASHA Approved Independent Study Provider. Independent Study must be based on the same sound program principles that ASHA Approved CE Providers use to plan group learning activities. IS activities may take many forms. For example, one may learn a new diagnostic procedure by reading journal articles, observing a master clinician conduct assessments, reviewing the assessment procedures in case files,Â or participating in an internship to receive hands-on experience conducting the assessment. These experiences might culminate with the learner's writing a critical review of the experience. Others may elect to develop an independent study for participating in a CEÂ course not offered for ASHA CEUs.
a mode of learning in which learners work through their study materials independently of other learners.
Capable students may acquire course credits at their own pace through non-classroom, student-faculty interaction. An additional fee is charged.
courses delivered and completed primarily via US mail
This option allows students to complete some of their credit requirements by studying on their own. A student and his or her faculty adviser agree in advance on the topic and approach of the study program and meet periodically to discuss the student's progress. A final report is handed in for a grade at the end of the term.
Studying without a teacher present. This can be done at home, in a library etc.
Official coursework undertaken outside a classroom setting. It will usually be monitored by an instructor.
Studying a subject for credit without regular classroom instruction. This may refer to on-campus courses that you take independently, or through distance education. See Distance Education, Correspondence Course.
An environment or curriculum in which a student may teach himself or herself a subject, using his or her own resources. Independent Study is usually based on the student's own desire and motivation to learn a subject.
All students that wish to apply for an independent study must do so through an academic department. This is a self-arranged course between a student and a faculty sponsor. Each college has its own policy on what requirements are needed in order for eligibility.
