The Independent Study Program at Berkshire allows students to pursue an academic interest that extends beyond the core courses and the dozens of electives offered in the regular curriculum. Working with a faculty mentor, a student designs a course and directs its in-depth development in either a one-semester or year’s study. Independent Studies may combine academic work on campus with shadowing area professionals or volunteer internships at local organizations and are taken in addition to a full course load; grading may be a letter grade or pass/fail.
The Independent Study Program is directed by Linda Bellizzi, a member of the English faculty. For more information, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org .
