HUMANITIES READING SUBJECT 4B

HUS4RS2

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

A reading subject is based on study that is more personal, but still planned and pre-approved. A reading subject is still supervised, but the learning is more independent. It is an optional extra in the curriculum of Humanities and Social Sciences. Students who wish to enrol will need to secure the agreement of a member of academic staff to supervise them. Staff members are not obliged to agree, as this subject is a workload extra for them. Students need to have at least a B average in their studies, as the subject requires more independence in study. If your marks to date qualify you, and if a staff member agrees to supervise you, the next step is to get her to draw up a written memorandum recording (1)the theme of study for the subject, (2) its intended learning outcomes, (3) a schedule for meetings between student(s) and academic supervisor (4) a list of the assessments and (5) their due dates, that student(s) and supervisor both sign. Only once this documentation is received will the subject coordinator ,the Director of Teaching and Learning (Undergraduate), authorise enrolment in this subject.
