Variable Credit Courses-Credit Hour Policy

The policy described in this section applies to the following courses:

  • CHEM 487-Internship,
  • CHEM 495-Independent Study, and
  • CHEM 498-Research

The learning experiences related to the above courses will follow the model of requiring the student to

  • (Internship) work at the internship’s external site, under the supervision of an approved contact person, or
  • (Independent Study) devote focused study with a faculty member, or
  • (Research) conduct comprehensive research with a faculty member,

for 3 hours per week, for 15 weeks during the typical semester, to earn one academic credit hour. This translates to an estimated 45 hours of experiential learning per semester for one academic credit hour.
