WIOX 390 Specially Arranged Subjects
Specially arranged tutorial courses in some subject areas other than those covered by the WIOX 311-384 courses might also be possible. A WIOX 390 is not simply what would be called an "independent study" course at Williams. Rather, a WIOX 390 is normally a "paper" (course) that is regularly offered at Oxford as either a required or optional part of the degree in various subjects. For a list of all the "papers" that make up the degree requirements in various disciplines, students should consult the University of Oxford Examination Regulations, a recent copy of which can be found in the Dean's Office. Important guidelines for how to make sense of this complex and weighty tome (the equivalent of the Williams College Bulletin) are available from the Dean's Office and also from the director. It is easier to find tutors for a WIOX 390 in some fields (Classics, English, History, Philosophy, Theology, etc.) than in others (Psychology, the natural sciences, etc) and students should realize that it is not always possible for the Programme to accommodate their requests. A sample list of Specially Arranged Subjects (WIOX 390) staffed during the past three years is offered below. This list is not comprehensive. Furthermore, students who wish to undertake a WIOX 390 course are encouraged to consult the Examination Regulations rather than simply repeat what other students in the past have done.
