Completing a field project proposal serves several purposes:
- It helps you clarify your project plans, goals, and scope.
- It helps your academic advisor and your field supervisor determine
whether your project will be feasible and acceptable given the purpose
of MPC 690.
- It serves as a planning guide when you begin your project.
The process of planning and designing (i.e., drafting, revising,
reviewing, revising, finalizing) your project will take place in MPC
664, Field Project Planning and Design.
The faculty does not expect a specific proposal format. However,
successful field project proposals will meet the requirements of any
proposal and will include answers to the following questions:
- What kind of project do you plan to do?
- What are the project's objectives?
- How will the project be used?
- What is the scope of the project?
- What resources will you use to complete the project?
- What activities will you perform to complete the project?
- When will each activity be complete?
- What skills must you use to complete the project?
- Why is the project appropriate for an MPC field project?
- What final products will be submitted as evidence of your work on this project?
- In what ways will this particular project be of benefit to you?
Your proposal should be logically organized, detailed, and persuasive.
