Our goal is to introduce students to the professional field of urban affairs and public policy through direct engagement in research activities. Students are given opportunities to develop and apply their research skills through a combination of coursework and participation in ongoing research carried out by Biden School faculty often through the affiliated research and public service centers.Through research assistantships, students work on research projects that lead to scholarly publications and presentations while contributing to externally-sponsored research contracts and grants. Students are encouraged to seek external funding to support their research, and to author/co-author research papers and reports, share grant-writing responsibilities, and make professional presentations. Faculty members serve as research instructors and advisors, as well as collaborators.
