ALC CONTRACT COURSE GUIDELINES & REQUIREMENTS If you would like to enroll in a contract/independent study course, please follow these procedures: 1. Independent study courses are only allowed with professors. Lecturers can no longer take on independent study students due to the already very heavy workload that they have. If you need assistance determining who is a faculty member, please go to our website: www.alc.ucla.edu . Click "people" at the top of the page and then "faculty". 2. Before meeting with the faculty member, you must already know what project you will be working on with the faculty. You must also in conjunction with the faculty member come up with a proposed reading list for your project. When a faculty member agrees to do a contract with you, finalize how often you will meet throughout the quarter, a summary of the project that you want to do and the evidence that you will present at the end of the quarter to show you have fulfilled the contract (paper). All of this information must be stated explicitly in the contract that you write up. Please use the guidelines below to pick a suitable course and to determine page length under the course descriptions and paper length section. Examples: - Asian 199, 4.0 units - equivalent of a 10-15 page research paper * Note: courses less than 4.0 units can not be used to count towards a major requirement. All major courses must be at least 4.0 units. - Chinese 197, 4.0 units - equivalent of a 4-6 page paper employing Chinese -Japanese 189HC, 1.0 unit - equivalent of a 4-6 page paper exploring course topics in greater depth through supplemental readings, papers,etc. 3.
