About the Independent Inquiry Flag

The purpose of the Independent Inquiry flag is to engage students in the process of inquiry over the course of a semester, providing them with the opportunity for independent investigation of a question, problem, or project related to their major. To that end, courses carrying this flag require students to complete projects and assignments involving independent investigation and presentation of their own work.

Once the flags have been fully implemented, all undergraduates will be required to earn credit for at least one course flagged for Independent Inquiry. Information on requirements for individual degree programs can be found in the current Undergraduate Catalog.
