RESEARCH PAPER INSTRUCTIONS

You must use a minimum of 5 scholarly sources in addition to the course textbook and the Bible. You must submit the paper as a Microsoft Word file.
Your paper must make a point. Do not merely report what is. Take what is, analyze it, interpret it in light of a personal Christian worldview, discuss options, and discuss things you think should change. Support your ideas, give alternatives to current practice and support them, and integrate material from textbook readings or lecture notes. If you are of a different major taking this as an elective, integrate your field into this project.
Proper spelling, grammar, and sentence structure is expected. Short, choppy sentences are NOT acceptable. This is a graduate level course, and deductions will be made accordingly. You must not use personal pronouns (I, me, we, us, our, etc.), and the standards of academic writing must be applied. Have someone else proofread your paper before turning it in to ensure what you are saying makes sense.
