GMIND 7001 Thesis Proposal Seminar: Research and Methology

This course provides students with an overview of research methods and design as a first step in defining and envisioning their thesis project. Through readings, application exercises, and reflections, students cultivate a thoughtful and open research mindset, including being mindful and addressing unexamined biases. Students articulate their thesis question and its foundation, and explore suitable research designs and techniques. Their coursework culminates in a comprehensive thesis proposal (typically 10-20 pages) along with a methods section.
