HCA591: Independent Study

3 Credit(s)
A focused study on a subject outside the graduate catalog. An independent study provides opportunity for original and in-depth research on a specific topic or regional issue of the candidate’s interest and professional focus. It is an important part of the curriculum and should be used to supplement existing coursework. A student selects a topic of research from a single field of learning or one which is interdisciplinary and prepares a research paper(s) to be submitted to the professor. The quality of the research paper should be appropriate to graduate level research. A list of preliminary readings and/or assignments and a means of assessment/ evaluation are clearly defined in advance of the study.
