Internships, Independent Study, Research
Internships, Independent Study, and Research opportunities offered on a "for-credit" basis are available in many academic departments each term. Consult with the department of interest to determine your eligibility for this type of instruction and identify a faculty member to supervise your internship, independent study, or research experience.
You may register this type of instruction (typically courses numbered 500 through 599) at any time once the registration process for the desired term has begun. Obtain an individualized instruction approval from Academic Records, finalize details with the appropriate academic department and supervising faculty member, and return the completed request to our office, Administration Building Room 004, for processing no later than the final day of the course adjustment period.
Be mindful, no more than 12 credits earned through individualized instruction may contribute to the 128 credits required for the award of the bachelor's degree at Furman.
