Independent Studies, Substantial Research Papers, and Theses
Independent Study and Substantial Research Papers (SRP)
Students interested in completing an Independent Study (INTS/PPOL 4991) or a Substantial Research Paper (INTS 4996) must apply using the Proposal Form for Independent Studies and SRPs . It is due by Monday of week 8 of the quarter prior to when you intend to register.
* Need more time beyond the Monday, Oct. 28th deadline? We are able to be flexible since this is a brand new process! Please just email firstname.lastname@example.org by Oct. 28th to let us know that your proposal is still coming!
If approved, you would use the Independent Research form in order to register for the credits.
Students completing a Thesis should work directly with an appointed faculty member and need not use the above proposal form, but would still need to use the Independent Research form to register.
Please review carefully all relevant sections of the Master's Handbook to ensure that you understand requirements and register properly.
