B706 is taught by
Independent research that results in a substantial original written product may be undertaken for credit with the supervision of a faculty member. The faculty member shall determine, after consultation with the student, the subject matter of the research, the scope of the project, the maximum number of credit hours that may be allowed (usually 2 credit hours), and the final date for submitting the final written product. A student may not register for a B706 independent research project without the written approval of a faculty supervisor. Regardless of the number of credit hours chosen, the student shall consult with the faculty supervisor often enough to assure that the research is progressing satisfactorily and that it will be completed by the scheduled date. Independent research credit may not be used to compensate a student for work as a research assistant.
