PC 900 Dissertation Guidance

3 Credits

This first step in the dissertation process enables students to discover for themselves what is, and what is not, relevant to the selection of their topic. The initial stages in organizing the dissertation are completed in this course. These include developing the topic and narrowing its focus, beginning the literature chapter by constructing a preliminary bibliography, and establishing options for methodology [for either qualitative or quantitative measures]. Within the compass of the course students will set short and long term goals and a realistic timeline for completions. Help will be given in setting up an effective dissertation committee. The final product of this course is the defense of the dissertation proposal.
