Thesis/Dissertation Proposals

A thesis proposal states a problem to be investigated and describes how the research will be
performed and reported. Approval signifies that it meets the standards of the University of
Rhode Island for the degree desired. Therefore, the preparation and writing of the thesis
proposal are of utmost importance. Although the student is expected to seek guidance in the
choice of topic and the method of solving the problem involved, responsibility for the proposal
lies with the student who will, as far as possible, work independently and demonstrate the ability to plan and outline an acceptable research project. Adherence to the guidelines given in the Thesis Proposal section of the link below should assure the student that all information necessary for the satisfactory evaluation of the plans for master's or doctoral research will be included in the proposal.
