Your Applied Research Project Proposal needs to address the overarching question that this course asks, which is: how can we collaborate, innovate, and motivate leadership to create homeland security and emergency management policies that will make our country, and the world, safer and more secure????
Your Assignment for Unit 1 is to create a timeline for completing your Applied Research Project Proposal within the timeframe of the course and to present your proposed research topic along with initial plans for completing the components of the Project as listed below. This Assignment should be a minimum of 4 pages in length and contain scholarly references to support your choice of research topic. This will be your action plan for completing your capstone research Project for your homeland security program and will be submitted in Unit 6 of this course.
Your research questions and research design may be based on what you developed in a previous course (within certain parameters), or you may develop and pursue a new research question and design. Keep in mind that your selected topic must deal directly with homeland security and emergency management.
