Independent study offers course credit to students who participate in an in-depth research experience within the department, supervised by a faculty member. For more information, email the Undergraduate Chair and the faculty member with whom you are interested in working. Course credit as ANTH 3999 can be given for pre-approved Independent Study and research work. Independent Studies cannot be applied retroactively; they must be approved and registered for in advance, like any other course. Students may count no more than two ANTH 3999 courses for the Anthropology major, and no more than one for the minor.
