4.5 credits 67.5 hours
600 level graduate course

This course is designed to prepare the educator to successfully engage in the essential aspects of research for the culminating research-based paper/action research/project required for the culminating course, Capstone Project: Master of Education. This course represents the first of two courses designed to take students through the process of completing the Capstone Project. Students successfully completing this course will have selected a research topic; produced a well-developed research statement and/or research questions; completed an in-depth investigation of scholarly literature related to their topic and complementary theoretical frameworks; prepared an outline of the proposed research methodology; and drafted a project prospectus to present to the Capstone Committee and Advisor (selected by the student from the approved list of Faculty) toward the end of the semester. Students will complete the first two of the five chapters required for the Capstone Project (whether it is the Research Paper, Action Research, or Curriculum).
