Students will be engaged in an independent research process under a supervision. They will think critically as they handle a research problem, and as they further develop the research proposal they have presented prior. Students will explore scholarly materials and develop conceptual solutions through intellectual reasoning and critiquing. They will develop and use clear methodologies to collect and analyse data quantitatively and qualitatively. Students will construct new knowledge and discuss the place of their new constructs in existing knowledge. Students will write a dissertation and present their research findings orally.
