Internships are open only to students who have completed at least eight course credits, at least
two of which are in the same department as the internship. (CR)

289/389. Group Projects (1/2-1)
Two or more students who wish to organize a course of study in an area not normally included
in the regular course offerings may assume the responsibility for finding a faculty sponsor and
for drafting a contract to be approved by the Academic Standing Committee. Students may, with
departmental approval, design their own off-campus group projects (students should contact the
Office of Off-Campus and International Studies if they plan to complete independent study
abroad). To enroll in a Group Project, a student must file a contract endorsed by the faculty
tutor and the chair of the department. The contract must be submitted on a form available from
the Registrar's Office at least one week before the Project is to begin. Students must consult the
faculty member whom they wish to direct their group project well in advance of the submission
deadline. Group Projects are open only to students who have completed at least eight course
credits. Only those students who have signed the original contract may register for the course.
Projects may be either departmental or interdisciplinary; however, a Group Project may not be
used to meet any of the general education requirements for the B.A. or B.Mus. degree and does
not count toward a major unless specifically approved by the department concerned. A half-
course credit in a Group Project is permitted only if taken in conjunction with another half-
credit course or with a parallel course. Exceptions must be approved by the Academic Standing
Committee. (CR)

290/390. Individual Projects (1/2-1)
Students may do intensive work in a subject or area not normally included in the regular course
offerings or else pursue in depth a topic encountered as part of previous studies. The
arrangement is that of a tutorial, in which the student works independently under the
supervision of a faculty tutor on a topic suggested by the student and approved by the tutor.
Individual Projects are open only to students who have completed the following requirements:
290 - a writing-designated course (W) and a minimum of seven course credits (at least two of
which are in the same department/interdisciplinary major as the Project); 390 - a writing-
designated course (W) and a minimum of fourteen course credits (at least four of which are in
the same department/interdisciplinary major as the Project). Individual Projects may not be
used to satisfy the specific course requirements listed as Part One of the general education
requirements for the B.A. or B.Mus. degree and may fulfill major requirements only if the
department approves.

Students may, with departmental approval, design their own off-campus independent research
projects. Students should contact the Office of Off-Campus and International Studies if they
plan to complete independent study abroad.

To enroll in an Individual Project, a student must file a contract endorsed by the faculty tutor
and the chair of the department. The petition must be submitted to the Registrar at least one
week before the start of the Block in which the Project is to be credited. Students must consult
with the faculty member whom they wish to direct their Individual Project well in advance of the
submission deadline. Forms are available from the Registrar's Office. A half-course credit in an
Individual Project is permitted only if taken in conjunction with another half-credit course or
with a parallel course. Exceptions must be approved by the Academic Standing Committee. (OP)
