ORG LP902 - Doctoral Project II: Leadership

(Credits: 1)

This is the second of a three-course sequence that helps the doctoral candidate plan and conduct the doctoral project. Students familiarize themselves with the doctoral project process by reading and demonstrating knowledge of the Doctoral Project Manual and by attending a doctoral project colloquium. Students complete an on-line training program, the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI), to ensure that they fully understand ethical responsibilities associated with human subjects research. Students complete a Doctoral Project Proposal that articulates the research problem, critically analyzes the relevant academic literature, and describes a method for studying the research question.  The Proposal must be approved by all members of the student’s Doctoral Project Committee and will be reviewed by William James College Institutional Review Board (IRB).
