For Dr. Shapiro's Senior Capstone project, you will submit a research proposal consisting of the following components:
Introduction – Importance of your topic, identifying research gaps, and goals of study. This is the hardest part of the project, because you will have to develop your topic into a full-scale research question.
Literature review – A review of extant peer-reviewed theory and scholarship that provides a background for the study objectives, and identifies hypotheses (if appropriate).
Methodology – How will you propose to study the question(s)?
