Reading Courses




Reading Courses can be taken on any topic at the P-3xx and P-4xx levels provided there is no Lecture Course on that topic at the same level, which the student in question could have taken in normal course.

The content of a Reading Course should be equivalent to that of a full Lecture Course and evaluation should be based on an examination/report/presentation.



The course P-199: Reading Course I can only be taken in the Autumn I semester, and only if the student has been awarded a Drop in one of the Compulsory courses.

The course P-199 may be considered in lieu of one of the P-3xx courses.

The course P-499: Reading Course II can be taken as any one of the 4xx Electives, but not more than ONCE.
