ahandrewh teaches directed studies

Information for SIAT undergraduate students looking to do a directed study.

What is a directed study?

A directed study is a one-term project which you are 'directed' by an instructor. This direction involves regular meetings, deliverables, and progress on the agreed upon project. You are expected to be self-motivated and to take initiative. Coming with ideas of what you want to do for a directed study is required.

There are some things that do not work as directed studies. Please avoid the following:

The application process

3 months before the term starts, email Andrew to confirm interest and availability. Please provide a copy of your unofficial transcript for review.

2 months before, an initial draft of the directed studies form is due. We start reviewing and revising the proposal.

1 month before, the directed studies form revisions should be completed. Both student and faculty sign the form, and the faculty member submits it to the department.


For Summer 2021, I will be unavailable for directed studies.

For Fall 2021, I will have one opening for directed studies.
