Independent Study    1.0-3.0 Fa/Spr

This course is a graduate level independent study offered as 398A-C for 1.0 to 3.0 units respectively. You must register directly with a supervising faculty member.

PHED 399

Master’s Study    1.0-6.0 Fa/Spr

Prerequisites: See the department secretary.

This course is a master’s study offered as either a Master’s Thesis, identified as 399A-F for 1.0 to 6.0 units respectively, or as a Master’s Project, identified as 399G-L for 1.0 to 6.0 units respectively. You must register directly with a supervising faculty member. The project is the culminating graduate experience in which you can enroll in lieu of the thesis where the end result is a tangible product. Examples might include facilities planning, compilation of data, construction of a course of study, construction of teaching aids, publication of manuals, or producing a dance production. In each example there will be a written component intended to describe the process, the end result, and the candidate’s competence in descriptive writing.
