Published by Dr. Tigere Muringa on

1. Choose a topic: The first step in getting started with your master’s proposal is to choose a topic that is of interest to you and aligns with your field of study. It’s important to select a topic that is specific, researchable, and feasible within the time frame of your master’s program.

2. Conduct a literature review: Once you have chosen a topic, conduct a thorough literature review to familiarize yourself with the current research and knowledge on the subject. This will also help you to identify gaps in the existing research and formulate a research question or hypothesis.

3. Develop a research plan: Develop a detailed research plan that outlines the objectives, methods, and timeline for your study. This should include information on the research design, data collection methods, and data analysis techniques you plan to use.

4. Get feedback: Seek feedback on your proposal from your advisor or other faculty members in your department. They can provide valuable insights and suggestions for improving your proposal.

5. Make revisions: Based on the feedback you receive, make revisions to your proposal as needed. Once you are satisfied with your proposal, submit it to your department for review and approval.
