Create a Directed Studies class

Faculty members and their students may create Directed Studies courses, following UPEI's Academic Regulations. 

Creating a Directed Studies course requires a student proposal approved by the instructor, the department chair and the appropriate dean. The proposal must be submitted the Registrar no later than the last day for course change for the semester, and must include a course title, a description of the content and of the method of evaluation, the names of the instructor and the student(s), the semester and year the course is offered. At the conclusion of the course, if there have been substantial changes from the original proposal, the instructor will submit a report to the department chair, the appropriate dean and the Registrar.
