Course Description

The main goal of this course is to accompany students along the process of completing the Master’s Research Project by the end of the semester. This course and the Master’s Research Project you will produce this semester are designed as a capstone experience: the goal is to use the knowledge you have gained throughout your graduate program in order to produce an original, well designed, well-researched and well-written piece of research, which, with some additional work, may be publishable. Your work for the Master’s Project will build upon the work you have completed in DIPL 6310 (Research Methods). The course will include a combination of group meetings (at the beginning and the end of the semester), mandatory peer-group meetings, and mandatory one-on-one meetings with the instructor. This syllabus is subject to modification by the Instructor; any modifications will be posted by e-mail to the class.
