If you have taken ASIAN 210 (Asians in the U.S.) and are interested in working on a self-directed independent study project, please contact the Director of the AASP. Typically, independent study projects are open to students with Junior or Senior standing who are prepared to engage in an individually tailored research/creative/community-based project that is of relevance to their major or minor fields of study.
Students should have a full-time faculty member in mind for the supervision of their project, and should have approached this faculty member to discuss her/his independent study topic. With the faculty member's consent, the student can make an appointment to meet with the Acting Director of the AASP in order to complete the necessary paperwork to register for an independent study.
Please note that independent study projects should not be considered as substitution for existing AASP courses: independent study opportunities are for proactive students who are unable to find courses that suit their specific research interests.
If you have questions about independent study projects, please email Jennifer Hayashida, Director of the AASP.
After completing the Independent Study form, please submit the original - with all necessary signatures - to Ms. Lisa Steadwell in Room 1717 Hunter WEST. As with all Hunter documents, we suggest that you make a copy for yourself, as well.
