Research Methods Seminar

Students who plan to write a thesis or capstone project should attend the Research Methods seminar around the time they will reach 20 semester credit hours. Research Methods involves a one-time group meeting of about two hours in which the program faculty will introduce students to the research and proposal writing process. After the group meeting, students continue work on their preliminary research and begin writing their proposal working one-on-one with the research methods advisor.

Please note that the 20 hour mark is a guideline but not an absolute rule. Some students may be ready to begin the thesis or capstone project process prior to 20 hours. Consult your academic advisor for assistance determining when it is appropriate for your to begin.
