Independent Study Courses

The Math Department offers a number of undergraduate-level independent study courses. This provides an opportunity for students to receive course credit for the academic component of their work when they are:

  • Working in a research lab
  • Conducting their own research
  • Performing an in-depth study on a mathematical topic
  • Participating in an internship or volunteer opportunity

When a particular area of mathematics is not covered by a regular course offering, an independent study course provides students knowledge and experience in that area. Course content, assignments, meeting times and grade requirements are arranged with a mathematics faculty member.
