Course description:
An independent project takes place outside the regular classroom environment and is the advanced study of a topic of particular interest to the student. It requires a faculty advisor who will periodically consult with the student, evaluate the result of the project and submit the grade. An independent project must not be equivalent in content to courses offered at Santa Reparata. It is expected that students create and develop a study or production schedule for their projects and that they are prepared to devote at least 3 clock hours of work per week (45 clock hours per semester) for each credit award to be awarded. Students are required to begin developing their project ideas and completing their independent project form before the add/drop period ends. The faculty advisor must approve the proposed project by signing the form. The completed form must be presented to the Director.
