Independent study and lab practicum experiences provide the ideal opportunity for a student to do an extended research project in a subject of particular interest. Students are encouraged to do independent studies and lab practicum with a faculty member with whom they have previously taken a course. Faculty in the program are usually limited in the number of independent studies and lab practicum they mentor each semester. Please apply early.
