Your research proposal

Your Mission in This Course

Your singular focus in WF ED 550, Research in Workforce Education, is on your preparation of a research proposal styled, structured, and composed rhetorically so that it is sufficient for consideration by faculty responsible for managing your degree program with you (e.g., your faculty advisor, your doctoral committee chair, your thesis advisor, or your doctoral committee, who must be full partners with you in this course). Except for an online survey that you will complete during the first week of the semester during which WF ED 550 is offered, all of your assignments in this course result ultimately in the submission of your full and final written research proposal or, before that final submission, the various components that, in sum, comprise your proposal.
