Independent Studies

A parallel, more personalized course of study is provided by self-designed independent studies. Building on residency advising, the student pursues a self-designed program of inquiry, supported by written assignments and faculty criticism and discussion.

Online coursework and independent studies are pursued through fall and spring semester and include regular one-on-one faculty/student conferences, study group discussion and collaboration, and project research conducted through IDSVA’s virtual library.
