Each individual student in the Department of Theatre & Dance at the University of
Memphis and their artistic and educational needs and desires are met with a flexible
course selection. To meet the needs of the individual the department encourages students
to take directed individual studies courses.
Procedure for Directed Individual Studies in Theatre or Dance: (1.) Decide on a topic.
(2.) Find an instructor willing to supervise or tutor the directed studies project.
(3.) Develop a plan of study outlining the nature of the directed studies, what the
expectations will be, the time commitment, and how the class will be evaluated. The
student and faculty member must sign the document, and file in the Theatre office
during the advising session of the previous semester. Failure to do so will result
in administrative withdrawal from the course.
