PAPER ON SECURITY-RELATED TOPICStudents will be offered a set of topics and be required to specify their preference by ranking their top three topics in order. Students will be assigned topics based on these rankings. Other non-listed topics are welcome as long as they are pre-approved by the instructor. The paper should be 5-6 pages (SINGLE-spaced, 12pt Times New Roman, 1-inch margins on all sides). Sources should be scholarly and cited in APA style. The paper should have an abstract, introduction, literature review, discussion, and conclusion in some way, shape, or form.
Writing a paper should be a sustained activity that should last several days. The first phase is to understand the subject that you are writing about. Secondly, you need to develop your own ideas for the paper. Thirdly, you need to pen your ideas in a cohesive and structured manner. One good way of structuring a paper is to ask several questions to yourself.
