Supervised Study Approval Form
The Departmental 198 Supervised Study courses for fourth-year students allow you to design a study or project that captures your interest and supplements your learning and development. These are distinct from the Department 150 Research courses that are for hypothesis-based research and from the IDS 196 course that provides credit for direct teaching or course-specific projects. The credit for Departmental 198 Supervised Study courses, which is capped at four weeks total, counts toward the discretionary graduation requirements.
To craft a Departmental 198 Supervised Study project/study, you need to:
- Think about your topic or area of study. The scope can be as broad or narrow as you’d like, but should have the same rigor and substance as a established course.
- Structure the project/study by outlining its learning objectives and linking them to competencies. The Departmental 198 Supervised Study application form is a good starting point when thinking about the project/study details.
- Identify a UCSF faculty mentor who will work with you on your project design, approve your proposal, and oversee your study.
