A formal thesis proposal shall be prepared in accordance with the standards of the academic discipline. The formal proposal must provide a clear and lucid description of a question or problem and a proposed method of answering the question or solving the problem. Proposal drafting is considered a learning process and helps the students avoid oversights and possible mistakes. Guidance on the format of the proposal and a sample proposal are contained in Appendix 1. The proposal should explain the question or problem to be investigated and convince the thesis professor and department that the question or problem merits investigation. It should show that the student has read the relevant and recent literature on the subject and it should contain a list of materials consulted during the preliminary stages of research. In general, the thesis proposal should include background information related to the research topic, purpose of the research, methodology, and analytic procedures to be used. The formal proposal should not exceed five (5) pages (proposal title page not included).
The topic on the whole could work, but some adjustment in the research questions and research design seems warranted. Those areas hear are presently not on track and will unlikely be successful if continued to be pursued in the manner described.
