Directed Research Hours (3 credits) - Registering for these research hours will give you credit for the 20 hours per week that you'll spend in your research apprenticeship. You register for hours under your advisor's name. The department is your advisor's primary affiliation (for example, EDLF for Rimm-Kaufman, Lee Williams, or Wyckoff; CISE for Stanton-Chapman; EDHS for Hamre), so EDLF 9998, for example, and then you'll look for the section with your advisor's name.

- PPOL 6100: Economics of Public Policy I
- PPOL 6150: Research Methods and Data Analysis I
- PPOL 6050: Leadership in the Public Arena
