Literature review for a research proposal on the below topic:
Research Proposal – Pre-Proposal Questionaire

1) What would you like to study? (What is the area of research you’re interested in?)

Bereavement in college students and how they are coping with their grief and what services are provided to assist them.

2) Why do you think this is a topic that should be studied? (Why is it important?)

About one-third of U.S. college students had difficulty functioning in the last 12 months due to depression, and almost half said they felt overwhelming anxiety in the last year, according to the 2013 National College Health Assessment, which examined data from 125,000 students from more than 150 colleges and universities.
From academic pressure, peer pressure and trying to navigate life and their future, the increase of gun violence and school shootings, add dealing with the death of a loved one and it could be crippling for college students to deal with. My research will determine if there are adequate services available for students to help them with dealing with their bereavement and offer referrals if needed to assist them in coping with the loss and process their emotions.

3) What research questions would you ask?
• Have you lost someone close to you in the last year?
• Have you sought help in dealing with your loss?
• Did you seek help through the college counseling center? If so, were there programs that dealt specifically with bereavement?
• Did you reach out to any faculty, advisors or other school officials for help in dealing with your loss?

4) How could you study this topic (quantitative or qualitative)?
Quantitative. Cross-sectional, survey design. What to get the quantity of college students that found help through Mercy College resources and how many were not able to find help from the college.
