Doctoral Project I

ORG LP802 - Doctoral Project I

Credits: 1

This is the first 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 subject research. Students propose and discuss topics of interest that may evolve into their doctoral projects through the production of a prospectus draft.
