In some cases, professors will recruit a promising student who would likely benefit from a directed studies course. In most cases, however, you are responsible for identifying a potential topic and approaching a professor whose interests overlap with this topic. Beginning this process in the semester prior to your desired start date will give both you and your potential supervisor enough time and the opportunity to discuss the proposal comfortably.
Professors will evaluate the potential for supervising your directed studies course in terms of time availability, research expertise, and alignment with their research program.
