PPPA 9000 - Dissertation


(20 cr.) The final dissertation demonstrates students’ scholarly ability to examine, critique, and synthesize knowledge and experience, so that new ideas can be tested; best practices identified, established, and verified; and theoretical, practice, or policy constructs evaluated and advanced.  Doctoral students have the opportunity to integrate their program of study into an in-depth exploration of an interest area, culminating in the completion their dissertation research study in this course. Students complete the dissertation independently, with the guidance of a supervisory committee chair and committee members. Students complete a prospectus, proposal, Institutional Review Board application, and a final oral presentation and written dissertation. Ultimately, every dissertation should make a fresh contribution to the field of public policy and administration. (Prerequisite(s): Core KAMs, RSCH 8100P, RSCH 8200P, and RSCH 8300P.) Note: When students register for PPPA 9000, they will be registered automatically each term until successful completion of the dissertation.
