A Special Study or an Independent Study can be designed to either meet a course requirement which will not be available for you to take due to a conflict or a way you would be allowed to study something that really interests you. This also works to meet additional course requirements necessary for graduation.
The first step is to find a professor willing to oversee your independent study. Then either pick up a form from the Registrar's Office or download it here. This form requires various signatures and works as a contract with your instructor of what will be required to earn the credits assigned.
It is important to finish this process during the add/drop period of the semester you intend to take the class. A late registration fee will be incurred after the first few days of the semester.
Employers are looking to hire recruits with "real world" experience. Internships are available to equip you with that experience. Our Career Services office can offer help in planning your internship experience. A professor on campus or even your major department may have additional ideas.
Once you have a location and a GFU professor to oversee your internship, you will need to submit a field experience form with the Registrar's office.
Monday of the last week of the semester is designated as a Study Day. Take a look at our final schedule for more information.
