Part 2 Choose your topic

Start thinking about a topic that you would like to explore in this course. Your topic should be something that interests you as you will be working with the topic for your upcoming assignments, including the final paper. It’s best if your topic is related to your program (field of study). Looking at the research guide may give you some ideas.


To help you understand what you will be doing with this topic, go to the Assignments area of classroom and read the instructions for each assignment. Review the templates and samples that are attached there as well.


In your initial post, describe the topic and how you might explore it.
