Credit for Independent Study Abroad
To receive credit for independent travel, a student must make an appointment to meet with Dr. Andonian to fill out the appropriate paperwork. Then the student will meet with his or her faculty advisor as well as the faculty member directing the independent study. The criteria for the student’s research paper are determined before the travel takes place. It is generally recommended that students do some preliminary research. An example of such a project is a paper that reflects the findings of the student on such areas as comparative government, the humanities, monuments, living conditions, economy, historical or cultural sights, environmental problems and solutions. Students must register for their Independent Study through the Center for Study Abroad.
