A Supervised Study course is an excellent method of research and learning opportunity offered by a majority of programs. These courses allow students to conduct an extensive examination of a selected topic, or perform laboratory and/or field work in their area of study. In order to qualify for a Supervised Study course, students must locate a professor who will agree to supervise the course.
