ACCT 440 Independent Study: Accounting

Prerequisites: Academic GPA of 3.0, upper level standing in business, and Department approval of study documentation.
An independent study course is defined as an area of study or research necessitating a high level of self-directed learning, and is an opportunity for the student to enroll in a course of intensified study of a subject (mutually agreed upon by the student and the instructor) not normally covered in other courses. In this course, students will be required to read, conduct research, complete written examinations, reports, projects, research papers, portfolios, or similar assignments that are designed to measure competency in the stated educational objectives. Accounting courses currently offered through formal instruction, or a new topic within the accounting field not listed in the Course Catalog, can both be selected for independent study by a special arrangement with the instructor and approval by the department chair.
