Paper Description

Each student will write an original 8–10 page typed double-spaced position or issue paper, (exclusive of the title page, abstract, and bibliography) dealing with some aspect of criminology. Students will select a relevant criminology issue. The topic will be submitted during Week 1 for instructor approval. Once students have approval from the instructor, they may start the research process on their issue. Once the issue has been approved, each student will write: (1) an introduction indicating why the issue is important; (2) a description of the issue, describing both sides of the issue; and (3) close by stating his or her reasoned position on the issue. The paper must include at least 10 scholarly sources (Wikipedia is not considered a scholarly source) and it must be in APA style. Students will submit various sections of the paper as the course progresses with the final paper due at the end of Week 6. For more details, see the course project under the course home menu.

The learning objective of this course project is to help students gain an in-depth understanding of an issue related to criminology. In addition, students will demonstrate their critical thinking abilities by presenting both sides of an issue and developing their own positions on their chosen issues. The paper should represent the student’s best professional research and writing. As such, students should pay careful attention to paragraphing, sentence structure, quotation conventions, spelling, appropriate citations, and other aspects of grammar.

This paper will address terminal course objectives, although which course objectives the paper will address will vary depending on the content of the paper.
