INDEPENDENT STUDIES:

Consult Professor C. Kanaganayakam, Room 324, Larkin Building, Trinity College (978-8250).

The College's Independent Studies Program affords students the opportunity of investigating in depth topics of their own choice that are not directly part of the present curriculum. These topics normally involve interdisciplinary study, though under some circumstances they may require concentrated work in a single discipline. The scope of acceptable topics embraces the natural and social sciences as well as the humanities. Participation in the program is restricted to students who have completed at least ten courses with minimum cumulative GPA of 3.17. Normally the work done is to be the equivalent of two full courses. Students who have completed fifteen courses with minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50 may apply to undertake a project for the equivalent of three courses. All proposals are subject to the approval of the Co-ordinator and Committee.

Students must submit to the Co-ordinator before the beginning of the academic year a copy of their academic transcript and an outline of their topic (signed by the supervisor) and a suggested bibliography along with the name of a supervisor, who will normally be a full-time University of Toronto faculty member. For evaluation of the work done in the program a short thesis or equivalent is required, prepared and submitted by the last day of classes in the spring term. The Supervisor and a second reader (nominated by the Supervisor and approved by the Coordinator before the end of September) are responsible for the evaluation. The Co-ordinator will require regular progress reports throughout the year.

Students enrolling for the first time will register for combinations of TRN 300H, 301Y, 302Y, 303Y, as appropriate. Those enrolling for a second time register in combinations of TRN 400H, 404Y, 405Y, and 406Y as appropriate.
