Dissertation Research

Your dissertation represents a culminating project within your doctoral degree in which you design and implement empirical research. You design the study, obtain or develop data collection tools, conduct your study, analyze the results, and write your findings. 

You select your own dissertation research topic you are passionate about that contributes to the field. You may know what topic you want to research as you begin the program or you may need time to determine exactly what you want to do.
