ELC-699 Foundations of Doctoral Study

4 semester credits
New student orientation to the ELC doctoral program is an in-person session between in-coming classes and doctoral program faculty. At the orientation, the faculty works with you to: assess your academic readiness; evaluate your research, personal skills and learning resources; facilitate your understanding of Fielding’s learning model and delivery method, set your academic and professional goals; and develop your support group of faculty and peers. At orientation, students choose a faculty mentor and begin work on their learning plan - a personal map through the learning process. The learning plan takes into account each student’s previous academic accomplishments as well as personal, professional, and academic goals. It includes a preliminary outline for the action- oriented research project that will ultimately become a dissertation. The learning plan should be submitted for approval within 30 days after the conclusion of the in-person orientation. However, the learning plan is a living document that students and their faculty mentors review on a regular basis.
Delivery Method: In person/Blended
Grading Default: Credit/No Credit Only
