Course Hours Per Week:

Course Overview

The focus of this course is the collection of the candidate’s dissertation research data. Over the next eight weeks, candidates will conduct their research as outlined in Chapter 3 of their dissertation proposal and tabulate their results. Candidates will use the assignments in this course to help them with these tasks.

Please note that if a candidate has not collected sufficient data by the end of DISS820, they must request an extension course taken instead of DISS821. The dissertation writing sequence would resume following satisfactory completion of work in the extension course.

Course Learning Objectives

  • Demonstrate evidence of research and data collection as specified in Chapter 3 of their dissertation proposal.
  • Synthesize the data, performing the required tabulation and organization necessary for evaluation.
