The Dissertation Proposal
Your dissertation proposal is almost like a mini-research paper, with a few things left out – you data results/analysis and a final conclusion. It is also a piece that must be approved by your committee before you move forward with your research, and you need to accept the fact that it is not usually approved the first time. There will be suggested revisions, and you will need to smile and say “okay.”
Sometimes the proposal does not include all of the crucial elements, or one element may be too “thin.” Those elements are:
- Title: This must be a statement of your research question, and should not be too difficult if you and your advisor have refined that question
- Introduction: Identify your problem and justify the importance of addressing it. Include a brief review of some significant literature in the topic area and point to gaps in that research that your research proposes to fill. This should run 3-4 pages.
- Statement of the Problem: Write it in one sentence
- Your Study’s Purpose: This is your goal. What do you hope to do – contribute something new? Validate earlier research?
- Design and Methodology: Speak to the structure of your research implementation – groups, timeframe, instruments to be used, etc.
- Possible Challenges, Nuisance Factors, and Limitations: Address these in the proposal so there are no surprises to the committee if they crop up in your research. And how will you address them in your data analysis
- Conclusion: This is aligned with the section on the purpose of your study. What do you hope to achieve through your research and how will that be significant to your field?
