Independent Interim projects give students an opportunity to develop their own course of study for a given Interim with the help of a faculty mentor. These projects are rigorous and require a high degree of independence, creativity and commitment on the part of the student. Such independent study does not include work at an internship. Rather, this independent work involves research, whether of a traditional academic or a more experiential nature, that then results in a final capstone project at the conclusion of Interim.
Please note the following restriction on independent study:
The student portion of the independent study proposal must be completed and submitted by September 23, in order to be considered by the Interim Committee.
The deadline is Friday, September 23 and no late proposals will be considered.
After the student portion of the form has been submitted, the faculty sponsor must complete his or her portion of the application.
