Directed Readings Courses
A directed readings course is essentially a one-on-one independent study at the graduate level, which the student arranges individually with a professor if the topic is not already covered in regularly offered courses. The 300-level courses available are listed in the online Brandeis Bulletin. (If a particular topic is not already listed in the 300-level readings courses, an instructor may request that the Registrar create a new number for the new topic.) Several students may arrange for a directed readings course together, if appropriate.
To Sign Up:
- The student should make an appointment with the instructor and fill out the attached Independent Graduate Study Contract as well as arrange periodic meetings and assemble a curriculum (reading list).
- The student should take the contract to the NEJS office to obtain the Director of Gradaute Studies' signature and to request the proper course subtitle form from Registrar.
- The NEJS office will issue the student a permission code with which s/he can use to register for the course.
