If you have interests that cannot be addressed through regular graduate-level courses, you may arrange a directed reading or independent project with a faculty member or Senior Fellow for graduate credit. Usually limited to one per semester, these courses may involve reading the literature on a topic, attending a lecture or seminar series, and writing a substantial research paper. It is your responsibility to make all of the arrangements before the semester begins.
To enroll in directed reading follow these steps:
- Submit the Directed Reading Agreement form along with your plan of study and instructor permission to the Director of Graduate Studies, the Director of Student Affairs and Registrar at the Jackson Institute.
- Once approved, please add the course in OCS as GLBL 799, if working with Jackson Institute Senior Fellow, or as GLBL 999, if working with Yale faculty.
