Reading Courses are generally set up between one student and one professor. To set up an elective such as this, the student contacts a professor to determine if they would be willing to do a Reading Course. The student then works with the professor to fill out a course contract that outlines the course description and the course deliverables. The contract then goes to the Graduate Officer for approval.
