Independent Studies

Course Number: NURS 697
Credit(s): 1-4
Prerequisite(s): Graduate student status and permission of instructor

Independent study is intended to enable master's students to engage in in-depth exploration of a specific topic of their choice. The student develops objectives and a study plan in consultation with a faculty member. The plan includes the nature of the independent study, the objectives, the expected outcome (such as a project, paper, and the like), and the grading procedures. The nature and amount of time and guidance to be provided by the faculty member are also determined. Independent study projects are intended to be pursued independently, under the overall supervision of the faculty member. See Student Forms to download the Master's Independent Study Form (N697).
