Some students may find that they have a specific interest in a topic related to therapeutic recreation not addressed in the coursework. For example, a student may want to complete a literature review on a relevant topic, or conduct a small research project. These students are encouraged to explore the Independent Study option. Students design their Independent Study in cooperation with a supportive faculty member for 1, 2, or 3 credits. The specific requirements and forms for an independent study can be obtained from the Registrar. Forms entail completing a proposal form that includes the general scope of the study or project and the designation of the independent study faculty advisor, and a description of the goals and outcomes of the study or project.
