Dissertation Project Seminar

MS 5A01

This tutorial will lead students through the process of completing their dissertation project proposal. The tutorial will involve criticizing and focusing a proposal in order to make it sufficiently rigorous, yet within the capacity of the student’s expertise. The importance of an appropriate methodology for the research question will be underscored. The tutorial will consider how a topic can be reworked sufficiently to address deficiencies or overreach in scope and how to write a clear thesis statement. The objective of this course is to lead the student into writing a focused and usable dissertation project proposal.

*This tutorial will consist of one-on-one sessions with the professor via the Zoom conferencing app.
