If you have taken EDMG540 (Research Methods), you can use the EDMG540 template to structure your Final Project
Final Project submission to Turn It In is automatic through Week 8 Assignments. You do not need Turn It In Class ID or Password.
You do not have to submit a formal course Final Project proposal for approval, but it can be useful for you to send me your Problem Statement, Research Question (“?”), Thesis, and Literature list to make sure you are on the right path.
You can choose any course-related topic that interests you, and investigate it in-depth. Make sure it is linked to course-related topics. For example, it can be a (US or global) “case study” that confirms or refutes one or more hypotheses from the readings.
Course readings pertinent to your chosen topic must be APA-referenced/cited in the body of your Final Project and listed under References in addition to your topic-pertinent literature.
