EDUC 770, Dissertation Milestone: Writing the Introduction, 1 Unit

The purpose of the course is to assist students in identifying a research interest, narrowing and refining that interest, and identifying research questions that are directly tied to the research goals. Emphasis is placed on framing a research topic within the context of existing literature as a starting point for the dissertation, and developing a rationale for why the research is necessary and potentially valuable to the discipline. Upon successful completion of EDUC 770 students will have an initial draft of the dissertation introduction (Chapter 1) that provides an overview of the proposed dissertation inquiry.

Prerequisites: EDUC 760 and EDUC 761
