Purpose: The research study proposal is an opportunity for students to investigate a topic of interest to them and apply the knowledge they have learned through the course by writing a research paper. Students will submit elements of the proposal throughout the semester and receive feedback from the instructor on each exercise. These elements will be compiled to write the final research proposal. Any suggested edits that were provided to the students in assignment feedback should be made and included in the final proposal.
