- UNIV 2001 credit does not apply to electives in any GWSB degree.
- Only students studying Sport, Event, and Hospitality Management should register for their required TSTD 4102 Practicum in conjunction with an internship.
- International students pursuing CPT should register for BADM 4950 or TSTD 4102 (if applicable).

Completing an Independent Study Project

Consent to supervise BADM 4995: Independent Study is at the discretion of the faculty member and is not guaranteed. Students are strongly encouraged to talk with a GWSB advisor before pursuing this option in order to see if BADM 4995 can be used to fulfill a degree requirement.
