G 482 Independent Study



A geography independent study offers students an opportunity to undertake a well-defined research project. While these students conduct their work under the guidance of a faculty member of their own choosing, the project is carried out in an independent manner without regular class meetings. Effective independent study is characterized by a reduction in formal instruction and an increase in the individual student’s responsibility and initiative in the learning process. Prerequisite: Students must have earned 60 or more credits and a minimum of 2.5 cumulative grade point average at the time of application and G 100  or permission of the instructor.

1-3 credit hours
