Dissertation Proposal Seminar

Course Number: 53500

Course Description

This seminar focuses on the development and discussion of dissertation proposals. Over the course of year, students will attend 15 2-hour workshops devoted to 1) formulating and refining research questions, 2) clearly presenting a methodological strategy, theoretical grounding, and relevant literature review, and 3) building a committee who will provide ongoing intellectual support. It is expected that each student will produce successively more complete documents, leading to full proposals, over the course of three quarters. Before the end of the year, each student will present a pre-circulated draft proposal for discussion and feedback.
