ECON 99
Independent Study: Economics Winter 2023

Class Details

Open to upperclass students. Students interested in doing an independent project (99) during Winter Study must make prior arrangements with a faculty sponsor. The student and professor then complete the independent study proposal form available online. The deadline is typically in late September. Proposals are reviewed by the pertinent department and the Winter Study Committee. Students will be notified if their proposal is approved prior to the Winter Study registration period. Winter Study 99 projects sponsored by the economics department must adhere to a specific set of rules outlined on the economics department website at (https://econ.williams.edu/major/economics-winter-study-99-guidelines/). Please review these rules well in advance of the deadline.
