CPSY 9000L - Dissertation


(5 cr. per term for a minimum of four terms) Doctoral students are provided with the opportunity to integrate their Program of Study into a research study through which they explore a specific area of interest in this course. Students complete the dissertation with the guidance of a chair and committee members through a learning platform classroom in which weekly participation is required. Students work with their dissertation chair to write the prospectus, complete an approved proposal (the first three chapters of the dissertation), complete an application for Institutional Review Board approval, collect and analyze data, and complete the dissertation. During the final quarter, students prepare the dissertation for final review by the university and conclude with an oral defense of their dissertation. Once students register for CPSY 9000L, they are registered each term until successful completion of the dissertation for a minimum of four terms. (Prerequisite(s): Foundation and core courses and designation of an approved dissertation committee chairperson.
