The student will compare and contrast a topic from the list of general topics given below. Students must narrow the general topics to work within the word count requirements.

Papers that are late (turned in after midnight on the due) will receive a deduction of 5% per day. If there are extenuating circumstances, a conversation with the instructor or a written note will be required explaining the issue. This conversation/note does not guarantee that the instructor will give full, on-time credit, but the information will be taken into consideration. All essays are to be submitted through Canvas.
