Plan your Course
Build a custom Disciplinary Credit course based on employment (volunteer or paid), that relates to your field of study with the support of an Academic Supervisor for your final paper/project.
To build a Disciplinary course (3 credit course) you must secure a work (paid or volunteer) experience over a semester (12 weeks) working a minimum of 120 hours. In addition to completing placement hours, you need to secure an Academic Supervisor with an academically relevant project proposal. In additional, you need to submit monthly reports, learning objectives, participate in a employer monitor visit, and complete a final project.
All Disciplinary courses are classified under the discipline that is relevant to your Academic Supervisors area of expertise.
You may take a max of 5 Disciplinary Courses during your degree(s).
Disciplinary Credit Applied Studies offer students the opportunity to earn academic credit for discipline specific learning gained through work (employment or volunteer) experiences related to their field of study.
