DMN-815 The Leader as Researcher

This course is to orient the student to the scope, design, methods, data analysis, and presentation of church ministry-oriented research. The course is designed to focus specifically on development of the dissertation project-proposal in its formative stages. This means that the final product of this course may or may not be used for the final dissertation-project. The goal of the course is to help one understand the process and not generate the final ministry project for the Doctor of Ministry degree. Various professors from Oakland City University will give instruction regarding writing style, research techniques, and data analysis. A review of quantitative and qualitative research methodologies will be examined.
