Check your thesis, major research paper, or major project handbook for other requirements of the proposal, such as:
The project handbook will tell you if your proposal will be developed within a course, in which case there will be dedicated course content to assist you, or if you'll be developing it independently with supervision by your advisor. If the proposal is developed independently, the handbook will outline the timeline for submitting the proposal for approval. Finally, the handbook will identify the desired word count for the document.
