HIST 493 facilitates the needs of students who wish to undertake independent study in a field or area of history. Students interested in independent study must obtain a faculty member’s approval to undertake study under their supervision. Normally, students receive three hours credit for one semester of study. After faculty approval has been obtained, please return this form to Mary Beckley at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will confirm creation of the section on Banner via email to student and professor.
