Students will introduce themselves to the professor and fellow classmates by writing a 3-4 paragraph (approx. 500-600 words) description of their capstone project and research plan that will guide their work for the rest of the semester. This description must include:
Your name and areas of study
A brief abstract of your topic and main research question(s)
The chosen format of your capstone project (research paper, creative project, internship)
explain the specific steps you plan to take to collect and interpret data/evidence to answer your research question (methods) as well as the reasoning behind using those methods—why the specific set of methods you plan to use are best suited to answer your question (methodology).

Will you take a qualitative, quantitative, or “mixed-methods” approach? What specific methods (e.g. survey, interviews, ethnography) will you use?
