Independent Study


Students may apply up to six credits of independent study toward INTS graduation requirements. All independent studies require students to work closely with a faculty member to carry out a research project. Under the supervision of a faculty member, students must prepare a serious research proposal to guide their project during the semester.  

Please see the list of affiliated faculty under the Program Faculty​ tab if you are interested in developing an independent study project. Faculty should be contacted before the beginning of the semester in which you begin an independent study.

Students participating in these courses must have completed at least eighteen hours of the INTS major to participate in independent study. Students who participate in independent study must have an overall CU GPA of 2.5. All Independent studies are subject to approval of the Dean’s office.
