MPP Directed Studies
The School of Public Policy may offer with approval directed studies adapted to an individual student’s needs. Directed studies will require independent writing and research, focusing on projects related to a student’s specialization, and frequent reports and conferences with a School of Public Policy full-time faculty advisor. Course credit may be offered; units will vary depending on level of participation (1–4 units). Consent of the dean is required for directed study. Written proposals must be submitted to the Office of the Dean four weeks in advance of the start of the term in which the course will be taken, and the student must be in good academic standing, free of probation.
