The Right Focus for Writing a Dissertation Proposal

  1. 1. Don’t Make It Hard On Yourself<br />Get your head straight before you start to write your dissertation<br />
  2. 2. Two Hats Doctoral Students Mix Up<br />You want to do good things in your world – you want to build solutions – this = Your Program Hat<br />You want to graduate, to finish your dissertation – this = Your Research Hat<br />
  3. 3. The Way You Write Changes<br />You say, “this study investigates” rather than the goal of this study is to….<br />You are cut and dried – you discuss the questions, the population and the context for data collection and analysis<br />
  4. 4. Remember:It needs to be CLEAN<br />Your writing is NOT about your topic. It IS about your proposed research.<br />Every topic discussed must impact some aspect of your study. If needed for background keep it very short.<br />Everything substantiates your research/NOT your ideas.<br />
