Individual students or small groups may conduct readings under a faculty member's supervision in one or two selected areas.
Students are encouraged to select a faculty supervisor from the MA-IS faculty list, approach that faculty member, and ask for assistance in pursuing the topic in which the student is interested. Each name in the MA-IS faculty list is hyperlinked to a page indicating that faculty member’s specific academic expertise and supervisory interests. Students wishing to then enroll in a directed reading course must submit a detailed learning contract (approved by the faculty supervisor) to the Director of the graduate program in Integrated Studies. A typical learning contract should include a detailed plan stating the work to be carried out by the student; intended outcomes; a description of the role of the faculty member; and a plan for assessing the work undertaken.
Athabasca University reserves the right to amend course outlines occasionally and without notice. Courses offered by other delivery methods may vary from their individualized-study counterparts.
