COMS 698: Directed Study

Prerequisites: Graduate standing and permission of the instructor, graduate coordinator, and the dean of the Graduate College

Credit Hours: (3)

Provides the opportunity for individual work with a faculty member in areas of mutual interest. May be repeated for a maximum of six hours of credit to count toward the degree (non- thesis option).

The Directed Study grade will be recorded as "Pass" or "Fail" or with a regular grading option. The credit hours will be counted toward graduation if the student receives the passing grade, but the course will not enter into the determination of the student's grade point average. If the regular grading option is used, the course will enter into the determination of the student's grade point average. The choice of grading option will be determined by the student and the supervising professor.

A student enrolled in a degree program may not take a Directed Study until eligible to file for admission to candidacy. Students electing to do a thesis as part of their degree requirements are not allowed to take Directed Study as part of the degree program.

Once the nature of the Directed Study is determined by the student and the supervising professor, the student will complete six copies of a form available in the Graduate College Office. This form includes the purpose and title of the Directed Study, the number of semester hours of credit to be given for the study, and a brief statement about the nature of the study. The form must be signed by the supervising professor, the student's adviser, the department chairperson, and the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences before it is submitted to the dean of the Graduate College for final approval.

One copy of the approved Directed Study Proposal must be given to the Registrar before the student can register for the Directed Study. This proposal should be submitted at least two weeks before the end of the semester preceding the semester during which the Directed Study will be performed.
