Seminar for DMin students
Developing a successful D. Min. thesis proposal is a complex and multifaceted process requiring the integration of research, writing, and organizational skills, filtered through the conceptual and reflective lenses students bring to their projects. The purpose of this course is to assist D. Min students to develop these skills in the process of preparing a working draft of their thesis proposal, an annotated bibliography and literature review, a completed draft of the proposal, and a realistic and sustainable plan for completing the thesis. This course presupposes the writing of a thesis proposal as integral to the successful completion of the thesis project that it describes. It imagines the thesis proposal as a map delineating the route to the completed thesis, and it invites each student to become an active cartographer of his or her own proposal/map.
