Students can take Soc W 595R to work with a faculty member on independent readings, additional research, attending approved conferences, or any other academic activity that the student and faculty member determine will be of benefit to the student.
Students wanting to take Soc W 595R must find a faculty member willing to oversee the completion of this course (based on faculty expertise/interest and availability). A Directed Readings Agreement must be completed before registering for the course.
