Master of Environmental Studies (MES) - Research Design and Methods ENVI 5035   Research Design and Methods
This course has been designed to provide students with a range of tasks to be undertaken and skills to be developed to advance their individual research project from conception to a full thesis proposal. Strong research proposals will ultimately become the foundation for a successful and on-time thesis. Here, we formulate thesis research proposals in a stepwise, iterative process via interdisciplinary discussions and assignments. There is inadequate time to cover any specific method in detail, so students are encouraged to seek out dedicated methods courses where new skills are needed. This course is only suitable for students in a thesis- or dissertation-based program. This course supplements but does not replace the guidance that you will receive from your thesis supervisor and committee.
