List the courses and independent studies that you have completed during your program that prepare you for the proposed thesis.
List the methods course(s) that you have taken in the area of your proposed
thesis. (It is unlikely that the methods course will have the word "methods" in
the title, but it is a course or independent study in which you have studied the
analytic approach taken in the thesis. Examples of methods courses include: oral
history; community studies, media analysis, techniques in art history,
qualitative methods in sociology, etc.)
