Taught By: Christiane Paul

Section: A

CRN: 7773

Credits: 1

Open only to M.A. degree candidates who have completed 18 credits the semester prior. Students identify and work with their Primary Thesis Advisor and the Lab instructor to develop and refine their project proposal. In the class meetings, students will learn about the elements of a successful proposal, how to conduct a literature review, how to formulate and operationalize a research question, and choosing the appropriate methods and presentation media for their project. Students will also give progress reports and present their project proposal and receive feedback. In addition to course meetings, there will be one-on-one meetings with the Lab instructor and Thesis Advisors. By the end of the semester each student will have produced a written Thesis Proposal that must be approved by their Thesis Committee in order for the student to progress to Thesis Supervision during the subsequent semester(s). Students are encouraged to find and meet with their Primary Thesis Advisor prior to enrolling.
