    Independent Study

These courses are designed to give the student the opportunity to work one-on-one with a faculty member from the Mass Communication Department on a subject of their choosing. Students must select a topic of study with the advice of an instructor prior to registration. The topic should be in an area not currently offered in the Mass Communication department. The student must submit a proposal along with an independent study proposal form. A familiarity with the selected topic is recommended.
