POLI 397 Q - Dyer Institute Fellowship (0-3 credits)

(Prereq: permission of the instructor) The Edgar Dyer Institute for Leadership and Public Policy’s mission is to engage students in active learning opportunities where they may gain knowledge in various areas of policy research. The institute wishes to bring together a group of Coastal Carolina University students from all colleges and varying degree fields to participate in the Policy Fellowship Program. The goal of the program is to provide students with experience that will connect academic theory to practice, as well as foster the importance of civic-minded citizens. Over the course of the semester, Dyer Fellows enrolled in POLI 397Q will develop a fully formed research paper on a public policy topic of their interest. Additionally, students will receive specific training on how to craft supplemental resources, including a policy brief, survey tool and a press release. Acceptance into the Dyer Fellows Program is a requirement for admission into this course. F, S.
