Independent Language Study & Research

In consultation with a faculty member, students can propose a project in an area of special interest to them in a language other than English. This option is intended for an individual or small group of students –ordinarily 1-2 students– who would like to work with texts and other materials in that language under faculty supervision. Faculty can recommend projects to students, but the proposal should should be initiated by the students. Students should clearly articulate the goals of their project and what they aim to achieve by the end of the semester. All 2MC Independent Projects are graded CS/CU.
