These courses are designed to give you the opportunity to work one-on-one with a MCCS faculty member on a subject you choose in consultation with the professor. Students must choose a topic for investigation with the advice of an instructor prior to registration and the topic should be in an area in which we do not offer a course. The student must then submit a proposal including the independent study proposal form. Prior familiarity and work with the topic are recommended.
