Course Details

EDU780 Dissertation Proposal Seminar

The goal of this course is to help students through the next stage of their dissertation writing process—the dissertation proposal (the first three chapters of their dissertation). Students will draft and revise their proposal and receive individualized feedback from peers and the instructor(s). By the end of the course, students will have a concept paper and an outline of a dissertation proposal. Students will also have the opportunity to improve as a reader, writer, and researcher and gain an awareness of what works best in their own reading, writing and researching processes. Students will also receive training in defending their dissertation proposal. 3 Credits
