Thesis Proposal Tutorial

Course Number: 84-710

The aim of this course is twofold. First, to equip students with a comprehensive understanding of what producing a master's thesis entails. Students will read, think, and discuss relevant and novel research questions, as well as the content and purpose of each of the components of the thesis. The second goal is to help students develop their thesis proposals, which will be drafted throughout the fourteen-week course. While the draft is not expected to include the data that will be analyzed in the thesis, students should identify the relevant data sources and will develop a clear outline of what they need to do to complete their thesis.
