SOC 445 - Social Research Methods



This guide has been created to assist you in preparation of your capstone research proposal. The next few pages discuss how to develop a research focus and question, how to narrow that focus into one that is manageable and precise, how to conduct a proper literature review and how to design your research project and methodology to achieve success in this class. 

Part of this process is developing an annotated bibliography and literature review as you begin to study your research question. This guide will provide information that you can refer back to as you work through this process and you can always feel free to reach out to a librarian for assistance.
