Write a research paper. The paper should be 6-9 pages typed, excluding the bibliography. There is no penalty for writing more. You should have at least seven (7) sources cited in the body of the paper and listed in the bibliography. Your research paper should have a thesis (or a statement about the main points of your paper) supported by information from credible (academic, refereed) sources about the topic under investigation. The research paper should be written from a sociological perspective. The paper should be written in an academic manner and all sources of information should be given appropriate credit. Thus, if the research paper itself contains a citation it should also be listed in the bibliography. Double space sentences and use a 12-font. Paragraphs should be indented 5 spaces only. Please do not provide extra space in between paragraphs. Short quotes require quotation marks but long quotes should be indented, single spaced. You may use any formal bibliographic style (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.).
ou may choose to do either an individual or group term project in which you utilize sociological concepts to analyze and explain a social phenomenon.
