Independent Study Credit
Some departments at TCU offer an opportunity for independent study, usually pursued late in a student's major. It has a broad range of purposes. Perhaps most important is exposure of the undergraduate student to methods and techniques usually reserved for graduate students. Seminars, reading and reviews, and independent research characterize this phase of a student's work, which normally is optional. Independent study courses are also available to exceptional students with exceptional needs. A student, for example, may want a more intensive exposure to a specific subject than a standard course provides. With faculty approval, an independent study course can provide the opportunity to go as far as interest and capability allow.
