The fourth program in the core sequence allows students to deepen their understanding of the research process as they make decisions about their own thesis research design and methodology. Activities and assignments help students understand how their thesis builds upon and fills gaps they identify in previous research. Students will complete a literature review to guide their their own research framework and study design. They will write a prospectus in collaboration with a reader assigned in the course of Case Studies to facilitate the thesis research process. Through this course, students will improve their ability to communicate academic research to a broad audience via posters and oral presentations. Successful completion of this program is required to enroll for thesis credits.
