Graduate Student Directed Studies
A Directed Studies allows you to carry out an individual research project under the supervision and guidance of a faculty member. The nature and scope of the project is to be negotiated between you and the prospective supervisor. Graduate Students can take up to 6 credits towards their program requirements.
How do I apply for Directed Studies?
First you will need to find a supervisor: a faculty member at UBC who is working in an area you are interested in. If the faculty member agrees to supervise a project you should next plan out the details. What will the project involve? How much work will it entail? How will you be evaluated? Finally, you are required to complete and submit a Directed Studies Authorization Form; along with a course synopsis. Please submit the completed form and synopsis to Alicia Warkentin; EOAS Graduate Program Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org).
