594. RESEARCH APPRENTICESHIP (3) This course engages graduate students in the ongoing research agenda of their advisor. This is an apprenticeship experience and gives the student an opportunity to learn about data collection, data analysis, research formation, problem formulation, literature review and evaluation, research method and conduct, publication, presentation and editorial work. In many cases, the apprenticeship experience leads to dissertation research formulation based on the ongoing research agenda of one’s advisor.
