DPSY 8115 - Writing a Quality Prospectus in Psychology


(5 cr.)
Students in this course focus specifically on the process of writing the dissertation prospectus. Students develop a problem statement to be used in the dissertation. The prospectus is a brief paper, typically between 6 and 12 pages in length, that helps students articulate, organize, and begin to align the key steps in the academic argument for their proposed research. Students create a prospectus draft to establish the background for the problem statement, the problem statement itself, an initial survey of the relevant literature, and a research, implementation, and evaluation plan for the solution of the problem that will culminate in the formulation of a draft dissertation prospectus.
