With approval, students have the option to work directly with a professor on a Directed Reading course. This course is individually tailored for the purpose of improvement of research skills; to gain a broader background of knowledge in a particular area not covered by seminars; for more depth in selected areas of specialization; and/or to help meet the non-thesis M.S. research requirement. A Directed Reading course may be taken for credit to a maximum of 9 credit hours.
For approval, the student must approach a professor. Together, the student and professor draft the reading list, course outline and expectations. All arrangements must be made in conjunction with the Coordinator of Directed Readings, Professor Rose.
