The Department will continue to offer independent study credit to support students needing CPT approval for this summer, and through Fall 2017.  All work for these independent studies must be completed by the end of Fall 2017, and subsequently no further independent studies for CPT will be offered by the Department.

Students wanting to pursue a CPT independent study should prepare a written proposal describing the project and demonstrating the connection to the study of economics.  The proposal should provide appropriate bibliographic references, describe the organization in which the student will intern and a job description, and provide details (including contact details) about the person in the organization who will co-supervise the student’s independent study project. 

Students should submit their proposals for approval to either the Director or Associate Director of Undergraduate Studies. Questions about the proposals should also be addressed to these faculty members. 

Contact information and office hours for the DUS and ADUS can be found here.
