Research proposal

Your research proposal should be the guide/plan for your final research paper. The more detailed it is, the better your paper will be. The proposal must ask a unique sociological question which can be addressed using empirical evidence. The project should be limited in scope such that it is possible to answer the question during the time available in the semester. The proposal should contain:

A research question (this is a question that cannot be definitively answered but can be researched and on which a position can be formed and supported with scholarly research

A hypothesis stating what you expect to find

  1. A very brief literature review with at least 4 sources to demonstrate that you’ve started looking at the appropriate literature

A statement of method that describes what type of empirical data will be gathered and how you will analyze it

  1. Identify at least five independent and dependent variable relationships you plan to explore in your research.
