Undergraduate Procedures, Policies and Forms
Independent project forms
These forms outline the requirements for each independent project course. Please review the form for the independent project course you are interested in before meeting with a potential supervisor. When you meet with a potential supervisor, be sure to take a paper copy of the forms with you.
So, how do you find a potential supervisor? Review our faculty members’ various research interests: https://bio.ucalgary.ca/research/research_areas
When you have found a professor whose research aligns with your interests, send them an email. Be sure to write a professional message (e.g. start with “Dear Dr. X”) that introduces you and explains why you would like to work with them. Demonstrate your interest by highlighting what aspect(s) of their research intrigues you and why.
Files are all in one document. Worksheets are for planning purposes; please have a graduation audit completed at the Undergraduate Science Centre.
