An independent project takes place outside the regular classroom environment and is the advanced study of a topic of particular interest to the student. It requires a faculty advisor who will periodically consult with the student, evaluate the result of the project and submit the grade. An independent project must not be equivalent in content to courses offered at Santa Reparata. It is expected that students create and develop a study or production schedule for their projects and that they are prepared to devote at least 3 clock hours of work per week (45 clock hours per semester) for each credit award to be awarded. Students are required to begin developing their project ideas and completing their independent project form before the add/drop period ends. The faculty advisor must approve the proposed project by signing the form. The completed form must be presented to the Director.
All students must have analog SLR and digital cameras which function in manual mode.
SRISA studio courses will have personal and course materials to be purchased in Florence. Unless otherwise specified there is no need to bring consumable supplies with you. On the first day of class your professor will inform you of materials needed and where to get them in Florence.
