For your Thesis Proposal, you will prepare a written document that includes an Introduction section and a Methods section.
Introduction: includes the problem to be studied, theory that is guiding the research/review of current literature, relevance of the work, and specific study hypothesis. Your introduction should demonstrate the expertise you've developed in your research area, but also be more than just a summary of the articles you've read. Your introduction should be a compelling narrative about the research trails you followed, how they build up to your study hypothesis, and why your research study is original and important.
1. Follow the steps outlined under Identify Research Gaps to identify a research gap in the literature
Research Methods: includes proposed subject recruitment, measures to be used, procedures to be follow, and proposed data analysis plan. These should be based on the methods used in the articles that you read and discussed in your Introduction section.
