Description:

Competency Area: Research Strategies and Learning Domains
Restricted to Ph.D. II students.

Students will register for a Doctoral Learning Domain Project in order to conduct an in-depth exploration of an area of scholarship integral to their dissertation work. This independent study may be used to master a body of literature crucial to a student’s future research, although conducting primary research, learning research methods, or writing are also possible. Each student consults with his or her advisor and their Learning Domain Plan in preparing this project. Projects could include readings, discussions with an advisor or mentor, formal course work, or research work. The project must be designed and described in detail to indicate objectives, specific activities, weekly and monthly readings, assignment due dates, products, and methods of evaluation.
