Once you go through the Steps to Complete a Contract, you should choose the step to submit the contract "for approval." Then, even though Ariel will get an automatic notification that you have submitted a contract, it would be prudent to send an email directly to Ariel Goldberger (arielg) notifying him that a draft contract is ready for his review.

If Ariel does not respond within one week, please send another email reminding him that you have a contract awaiting review.

Individual study offers students the opportunity to develop self-direction, to learn how to manage a personal project, to focus on unqiue combinations of subjects, and to pursue original interdisciplinary projects without the constraints of an external structure. Students interested in a self-directed project, research or internship in the humanities, or projects that include arts, travel, or interdisciplinary pursuits are invited to present a proposal to Ariel Goldberger.

Students with a lively sense of self-direction, discipline, and intellectual curiosity are strongly encouraged to apply.

Ariel Goldberger supports interdisciplinary studies and projects in the arts, humanities, consciousness studies, and travel.
