Considering your prospectus will likely represent your first official submission to your committee. Typically want to start your prospectus by clearly indicating in its introduction the rationale behind your dissertation topic. This will necessarily involve providing pertinent background information—either in the introduction or separately—to familiarize your committee with the literature in which your study sits. Essentially, let your committee know that you have a rock-solid grasp on what you aim to study, and why you know you must do so.
