ARA 560 is a gradaute level course and requires the selection of one addtional reader from 11 different categories in curatorial studies. Readings are assigned weekly and most independent study readers end in by examining a single case study. The student may also select another case study that applies to their personal research than what is in the reader.

A final paper of 3-5 pages is required of all independent studies or a 1-2 page paper with an accompanying project or show proposal that addresses their research interests.
