Independent Study

Independent Studies allow Honors students to work closely with UTSA faculty both inside and outside of their major. Under the guidance of a faculty member, students engage in independent reading, research, and writing. Many students will take independent study as preparation for completion of an Honors Thesis. An independent study may be repeated for credit, but not more than 6 semester credit hours of independent study, regardless of discipline, will apply to a bachelor’s degree. An independent study counts as an Honors Experience.
