3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: Admission into Coles College doctoral program; ACCT 9006  , ACCT 9007   
Dissertation Design I is designed to provide a flexible learning experience to prepare students for the dissertation process.  In this course, we focus on a variety of issues including an introduction to the dissertation process, dissertation committee selection and approval, dissertation structure and design, and identification and evaluation of potential topics.  We will also discuss the preparation and writing of the proposal introduction, literature review, and hypotheses.  At the end of the semester, we will also introduce issues of research design (including how data can be collected and what methods should be employed in analyzing the data).  Research design and data analysis will be further explored in Dissertation Design II.  Each topic is introduced through selected papers and students must come prepared to present and discuss their own dissertation ideas.
