An individually tailored, supervised project on a subject related to applied and computational mathematics. The content and expectations are formalized in negotiations between the student and the faculty sponsor. A maximum of one independent study course may be applied toward the master of science degree or post-master’s certificate. This course may not be used towards the ACM MS or PMC if a student also wishes to count 625.801–802 or 625.803–804 towards the MS degree or PMC. This course may only be taken in the second half of a student’s degree program. All independent studies must be supervised by a current ACM instructor (exceptions must be approved by the ACM Program Chair) and must rely on material from prior ACM courses. The independent study project proposal form (see https://ep.jhu.edu/current-students/student-forms/) must be approved prior to registration.
