Ling 448: Information about Directed Studies Courses

You cannot use the on-line system to register for Ling 448 (Directed

Studies). You need to consult the Linguistics Department first.

Undergraduate Advisor and work with a professor to develop a course

proposal. Once your proposal is approved, the Undergraduate Advisor

will register you for the course.

Directed Studies courses are intended for the case where a student

wants to work on a particular topic or project that is not covered in

any existing course. If you have such a project in mind, the first

step is to talk to relevant professors, and persuade a professor that

this would be an interesting thing to do, and that you have the

appropriate background to do it.

Once you have located a professor who wants to supervise your Directed

Study, you work with the professor to draft a short course

description, specifying readings, course requirements, grading

criteria, and a tentative schedule for assignments and meetings with

the supervisor. This description should be short, usually less than a

page, but it will require a fair amount of research on your part and

several drafts. When you and the professor agree on a description,

you both sign it, and bring it to the Undergraduate Advisor, who

needs to approve the proposal, acting as the Department Head's

representative.

Since the teacher is not paid for supervising a Directed Studies

course, it is usually only appropriate to ask people who are part of

the regular faculty.

Directed Studies (Ling 448) does not have any specified prerequisites,

but you are unlikely to come up with a suitable project unless you

have already done the core courses in the relevant general area.
