Project: Final Research Paper
Project Description: This is to be a 5-7 page research paper (including the title and references page) written in APA format. This is a research paper, not an opinion paper, so please limit any personal thoughts on your subject. You will be expected to use at least 3 sources of information. Sources may include books, professional journals, personal interviews, and reputable internet sites. You may use your textbook, but not as your main source. If you are not familiar with researching information via Ebscohost, please ask.
The paper must be uniquely written by you with all sources appropriately cited. Plagiarism will not be tolerated and all papers will be sent through SafeAssign, with a match of 25% or less.
Topics: The following is a list of potential topics for your paper. Check that you can find enough research information before selecting a topic. If you prefer to write on a topic that is not listed, just run it by me.
