Overview: Your dissertation topic will need to be approved by your professor and also the Graduate School by submitting a topic proposal.  The topic proposal is a general sketch of the dissertation – the topic, general reasoning behind the topic, as well as a potential thesis and thesis map for your Literature Review.  The topic proposal must clearly link to theory, identify what problem or gap in literature your proposed topic will address, and show a connection to program goals and core courses.
