Exploration Term-Contract Learning

Contract Learning Center

If you are interested in participating in independent study or an internship for academic credit, you should consider completing a contract under the supervision of a faculty member. Students have done all sorts of independent projects, including climbing a mountain, investigating jazz music in Birmingham, and compiling an oral history of the homeless. If you will be going off campus to complete any part of your contract, you are required to sign a release form. Click on release forms to determine the one that you need. Contracts can be completed any term during the academic year with appropriate faculty approval.
