For Majors only, no exceptions. By permission of the Director of Undergraduate Studies. Majors who have completed preliminary requirements for the major (“foundations” courses) may have the opportunity to pursue directed research for 2 or 4 credits under the supervision of a professor in the department, in most cases a professor with whom they have previously taken an upper level literature/culture course. Students should first contact the professor to discuss this possibility; the student and professor will devise a syllabus to be submitted for approval to Professor Mendelson, Director of Undergraduate Studies. Call 212.998.8770 to make an appointment with Professor Mendelson.
