Independent Study

Develop your skills.

Independent study is a tutorial under the supervision of Academic Director Nicholas Rizopoulos, Ph.D. Taken in one or more semesters, the study provides highly motivated students a chance to explore selected topics in great depth and to develop their skills in writing and argumentation. The course is modeled after systems at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, as well as Yale University’s famed Scholar of the House program.
