Enrolment in Schulich Guided Study 4900-Series Elective Courses
Under guidance of a full-time Schulich faculty member, individual students in Year 3 or 4 may undertake a special program of Guided Studies tailored to the mutual interests of the student and the faculty member. These studies are co-designed by the student and the faculty member in advance of start of the academic term.
The student and faculty member must sign a Guided Study Form that includes:
1. the explicit learning objectives for the student,
2. an agreement on the most appropriate means of achieving these objectives, and
3. a means of assessment to demonstrate that the learning objectives have been met.
Guided Study courses should have a minimal overlap with courses that a student has previously taken and with courses that otherwise are available through normal course offerings.
A student can take a maximum of 6.00 credit-hours of Guided Study courses for BBA or iBBA degree credit.
Guided Study courses are coded as SB/XXXX 4900 3.00. The XXXX portion of the course code uses the functional area or program a faculty member is associated with, such as FINE 4900 3.00 or ECON 4900 3.00. Please refer to page 12 for Enrolment Guidelines related to adding a Guided Study course.
Guided Study courses normally are supervised by a full-time (i.e. tenure-stream) faculty member. If the supervisor is a part-time or contract instructor, a full-time faculty member must co-sign the form.
Faculty members are not obligated to agree to assist a student with a Guided Study course.
