Independent Study for CWRU Undergraduates

The Department faculty welcomes undergraduate students who wish to experience laboratory research on a firsthand basis. Besides the SURP Program, which sponsors research for undergraduates from all institutions during the summer, Case undergraduate science majors may also enroll in PHOL 351 Independent Study for up to six hours of credit during the academic year or summer term. This course is tailored to the individual student's interests and involves an independent research project as well as didactic study in physiology textbooks, reviews, and original articles. Students should consult with the faculty member whose work they have interest in to plan their individual experience.

Qualified students may also be eligible for part-time employment in research laboratories during the academic year and summer term through the Office of Student Employment
