Text 29 Oct What exactly is “Independent Study”?

What exactly is I.S.?

For more than 60 years, every Wooster graduate has had the experience of creating something genuinely new and valuable through I.S.: Independent Study.

I.S. is a year-long project that allows you to throw yourself into an idea you care about. It’s like being in a class of one. (Literally. I.S. takes the place of one of your four classes each semester of senior year.)

With the one-on-one support and guidance of a faculty adviser in your senior year, you’ll take a journey of self-discovery — culminating in a major research paper, an art exhibit, or a performance — that pulls together what you’ve learned and shows others where you’ve been.

It’s a significant piece of work, but you don’t go there all at once. Wooster’s curriculum is structured to prepare you, from your first semester on campus, for the kind of scholarly, critical inquiry that I.S. demands.
