ENG 470 Independent Study: Senior Level (3 credits)
The chief purpose of the senior-level independent study project is for the student to acquire knowledge in a particular area of literature (reading and research project) or to produce a substantial piece of writing, either creative or discursive (writing project). For the reading and research project, the student will develop a course of study with the project director that may utilize audiovisual as well as printed material. In addition to a reading program, the student will write a substantial paper that develops from that reading program; the paper should use primary texts and have a textual perspective—historical, critical, aesthetic, or mythic. For the writing project, the student will develop a program of reading and writing with the project director.
