Directed studies

Directed studies are student-led research projects. They are a way to concentrate on research in a particular area or work with a certain faculty member on a research topic.

If you would like to undertake a directed study, you must find a faculty member to supervise your project and create a proposal using our ‘best practices’ model. Your chosen faculty supervisor and the chair of your program must approve the proposal.

Directed studies are three credits, with a maximum of six credits or two directed studies counting toward your degree.
