This week you will be completing the Purpose section of the Prospectus Form. For the Purpose section, you will describe what you will compare, explore, or examine in order to address your stated research problem. Be sure to clarify your variables/concepts of interest. For example, state what needs be studied by describing two or more factors (variables) and a conjectured relationship among them related to the identified gap or problem.
For details on completing the Purpose section see the DHA Program Prospectus Support site information for the Research Problem and Purpose. The DHA Program Prospectus Support site is located on the DHA Doctoral Study webpage.
The Supporting Literature section must also be updated if you located additional resources related to your study variables.
By Day 7
Submit your updated Prospectus Form with the completed information required for the Purpose section, additional sources selected and with the previously completed sections of the form.
Note: You should also include any work from previous weeks on the Prospectus Form. The Prospectus Form is designed to be iterative, so you will be continually revising and adding to the content as you progress through the course.
