1.  A brief description of the three subject areas studied this semester that you found most interesting and/or informative (citations and specific academic information gained from the course MUST be provided).

2.  Identify, discuss and describe a specific contemporary political problem in one of the three subject areas you identified (above).

In other words: MENTION 3 AND DESCRIBE 1. DO NOT GO ON AT LENGTH ON ALL 3 TOPICS. See more below:

3.  Construct and communicate a solution to the problem you identified (above).  Make sure to develop and express your solution in the form of an argument that is supported by well-documented and properly cited fact and data.

Correct grammar, capitalization, punctuation, complete sentences, and CITATION of your sources (textbook readings with page numbers and textbook citation; lectures or video instruction; and outside research sources excepting Wiki sources) must be included.  Failure to submit your essay by the deadline will result in a grade of zero for the written assignment.

Your written assignments should be typed and double spaced with 12-point font and one-inch margins top, bottom, and side.  Political Science as a field has adopted the APSA Manual of Style; however, you are free to use the citation style adopted by your major department or the style used in your English composition courses (MLA or other style).  Regardless of citation style, all sources must be properly, thoroughly, and consistently cited.  Careful attention to grammar, spelling, and the mechanics of presentation is expected.
