Choose a topic that you would like to know more about and develop a research proposal that seeks to answer your question. The purpose of this is to apply the knowledge you have acquired over the course of the semester by establishing a thoughtful and interesting research design. Once you have decided on a topic you will need to complete some background research (literature review), decide on a design (quantitative or qualitative), and then compile these features to explain how you would research the question of interest. To be clear, this is not a research paper, so the bulk of your grade will be determined by how well you have constructed your question and the design you argue is the best way to approach it. Your final product should include the follow items: Identification of the Research Question and Explanation of Interest (why it is important). A clear thesis statement (or hypothesis) and an explanation of your expectations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
