BLS 401: Individual Study in the Humanities

(1–3 credits)

Prerequisite: Admission to the major, successful completion of at least one semester of course work at UNCG, and permission of an approved, cooperating instructor.

Directed program of reading and/or research in the Humanities. Available to majors upon recommendation of an instructor and approval of the program director.

The Individual Study option is made available to students who have an interest in studying a particular topic, related to the humanities, that is not currently represented in the BLS curriculum. Variable credit can be awarded based upon depth of study, amount or difficulty of reading, and complexity of gradable assignments.

Student submits a formal plan of study and time-line for completion of assignments, developed in cooperation with the overseeing faculty member, to be approved by the program director and kept on file in the program office. Failure to complete an Individual Study, or to formally withdraw from it prior to the withdrawal deadline, will result in a failing grade for the number of contracted credits.
