An Independent Learning Project (ILP) is supervised reading or research at the upper-division level.
Students completing and Independent Learning Project are able to cover content that may otherwise not be offered in the curriculum.
Students who have completed 12 credits within the psychology department.
If you are interested in an ILP, you are responsible for coming up with a loose idea of the topic you want to cover and for finding a faculty member who will agree to supervise your proposed project. Together with this faculty member, you should complete an ILP form. The ILP supervisor should sign this form, which will then be forwarded on to the department chair for final approval.
ILP forms are due at various times depending on the number of credits.
An ILP focuses on reading and content whereas an ERP is focuses on conducting empirical research with a faculty member.
