If you have decided to pursue a graduate degree, then you are obviously aware of the considerable research and writing that lies ahead of you. Before you can do any of it however, you'll need to get your dissertation proposal accepted. Step one involves putting together an initial collection of your thoughts and ideas, and presenting them to your course supervisors.
A dissertation proposal will always include the following; a working title, abstract, introduction to your ideas and a statement of the purpose, aims, and rationale of your proposed dissertation. You will also need to include a bibliography, schedule and the methodology you plan to use.
We have some other ideas that will inspire you to write a perfect proposal that is certain to win your advisers over!
You'll need to have a concise, clearly worded statement telling your supervisors exactly what your dissertation will concern, and a preliminary title for your work.
What will you be contributing to your field by conducting the research and writing required for your dissertation? What is its relevance?
You will need to come up with a unique and original angle for your dissertation. What will make your work stand out from all the other writing that has already been done in your field?
Details of the methodology, and the location of any lab or on site research should be included in your dissertation proposal. Are you planning to interview people? With whom, and when will you conduct these discussions?
Your advisers and thesis supervisor will want to know that you have roughed out a schedule for the research and writing that will need to be done. You should set milestones and goals for yourself, and the work to be accomplished.
