The Independent Study allows students to earn up to four credits pursuing a topic of his or her choice tailored to fit the focus of the major.

An English major may choose to do an individual research project, overseen by a faculty advisor, investigating a topic in depth and culminating in a paper that demonstrates literary scholarship and independent thought.

An English major focusing on creative writing may choose to do a student-designed writing project culminating in a significant and complete body of creative or expository writing.
