To successfuly registrater for an Independent Study course, please follow these three steps exactly:
Identify a topic and find a member of the faculty to supervise the studies. The topic should be either one not covered by any Economics class or one that you wish to explore on a deeper level than provided by any undergraduate ECON class. Dr. Carol Scotese
is available to help you select a topic and can suggest members of the faculty who may be interested in supervision. Schedule a meeting with Dr. Carol Scotese
by calling the Department of Economics at 804-828-1717.
Work with the faculty member to complete the Independent Study agreement
. The agreement should contain a complete course description including deliveries, grading and frequency of meetings with the faculty member. Once completed the agreement should be returned to the Department of Economics.
Once the Independent Study has been approved, register for the class by visiting the Undergraduate office located in Snead Hall Suite B1100.
