INDEPENDENT STUDY

An independent study offers students a way to receive academic credit for completing an in-depth examination of a topic related to their course of study. To pursue an independent study, students need to arrange for faculty supervision and submit a proposal for approval that includes the scope of work to complete, the academic value of the project, and the method for performance evaluation. 

STUDY ABROAD

UMass’ International Programs Office offers support for students who are interested in participating in an international study abroad program. Advisors work closely with each student to help them find the right program for their needs, and guide them through the application process and beyond.
