Sources of information may include journals, textbooks, Internet information (must be scholarly or government sites; no wikipedia), research documents, personal interviews (experts), or other appropriate reference material.

You will need to prepare a research paper that includes a minimum of 6-pages, 10-12-pt font, 1-inch margins, that is typed and double-spaced. Please limit your papers to no more than 10-pages. Included in your paper is to be a cover page and a bibliography of your sources (pages not included in minimum). APA is the preferred method for citations (APA, 6th edition). Your paper should be organized by the following large sections: Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Discussion, and Conclusion. In addition to content, format, logical organization of ideas, grammar and spelling counts.
