If you're taking an independent studies or special topics course, you may be able to count the course as one of your work/community experiences. Submitting this form will give us the information we need to confirm your course's compatibility with the EDGE program.
We recommend talking to your professor about your interest in counting your course as an EDGE experience before submitting this form. A member of the EDGE team will contact your professor to discuss your course's compatibility with EDGE within several days of the form's submission. If you're completing an experiential learning course, you need to meet all of the following criteria to receive an EDGE credit for your experience:
|CHEM 494||Research Project|
|MSCI 421||Strategic Management of Technology|
|MUSIC 355||Music and Culture Travel Course|
|PACS 395||Peace and Conflict Studies Travel Course|
|PSYCH 264||Research Apprenticeship|
|PSYCH 464||Advanced Research Apprenticeship|
|HLTH 305||Community Development and Engagement in Public Health|
|MUSIC 392||Special Topics in Global Music|
|REC 252||Therapeutic Recreation: Physical Disabilities|
Because the experiential components of these courses (and others like them) change on a termly basis, they need to be approved each term to ensure they continue to align with the experiential learning course criteria provided above. When these courses give students the opportunity to experience a real or simulated work environment, they're approved as EDGE milestones.
If you have a question about independent studies/special topics courses or the associated approval process, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
