IDCE 390 - CDP Research Seminar


The general objective of the seminar is to engage students of the CDP Program (Accelerated MAs and 2-year MAs) in the process of defining, preparing, and shaping their final projects in order to meet the requirements of the CDP Program. Students will prepare proposals for one of the three possible kinds of projects they can choose to complete the CDP Program: (1) Research paper; (2) Practitioner Project or (3) Thesis. These projects have distinctive characteristics because they require approaching problem definition, research and practice in no equal terms. The seminar discusses some of these differences. However, more specifically, the seminar focuses on producing a good navigational chart for your project, a fluid proposal for a doable (and meaningful) project. The seminar starts with a “self-interview” about “what-do-you-want-to-do.” Then, it continues into crafting a proposal with a defined question, an applied problem, or a hypothesis; a working bibliography; and a methodological section.
