Dissertation Wrkshp

This course is the fifth in the required five-semester "laboratory sequence" in quantitative and research methods. This course is divided into the two broad areas of research and writing, a distinction that is only conceptual; in reality, it is very difficult to divorce one from the other: good research is the product of both solid reasoning and clear communication. The research aspect of the course covers defining a proposal and a thesis, selecting a topic, literature search and data collection, alternative methodologies, an selecting an advisor and a thesis committee. The writing aspect covers organizing research materials and developing an outline, avoiding writer's block, and professional and impact writing.
