Objectives of doing Dissertation
In the dissertation, students learn to write and submit a paper usually based on field data. This is the platform where students finally get the opportunity to apply Research Methodology and statistical lessons they have learned so far. This paper is designed in a way to make them understand how they can not only identify a social issue but also study them critically and analyze them in order to create effective implications for formulation of social policies. They are also guided to develop a deep sense of observation that turns out as an effective tool for gathering data from society. Doing dissertation not only makes them practically learn how to make use of these social scientific research methods but also prepares them to undertake future research works.
