Setting Aims & Objectives
The next step in creating a strong Dissertation Proposal is to decide on the aims and objectives of the work. What exactly is it that you want your research to examine? What are the questions you’d like to answer in writing your dissertation? How are you going to go about doing this? Clear aims and objectives shape a great piece of work.
Reviewing the Literature
A literature review is one of the key parts of a Dissertation Proposal: this section examines all the existing books and journals about your chosen topic. It looks at lots of books, journals, and other sources, to paint a picture of what is currently known about the topic you are learning. The goal is to show the reader where your work will fit into the existing knowledge, or to identify a gap which your research may fill.
