IS3850: Introduction to Globalization Autumn 2014
You have two options for assessment in the remainder of the course. The first is a combination of a third midterm and a shorter 5-7 page essay and the second is a longer essay without the third midterm. Below are some suggested essay topics. You can either choose one of these or come to speak to me if you would prefer to write an essay on a topic of of your own choice. You should have a minimum of five references beyond the course readings for the shorter essay and a minimum of eight for the longer one.
Remember that the quality of English expression and syntax are integral parts of any argument and will be important for the essay grade. The essay itself must have one-inch margins and be double-spaced (between paragraphs as well as between lines within paragraphs) and in 12-point font. Avoid plagiarism at all costs, which means at a minimum fully referencing your sources for the essay. You can use any referencing style as long as you are consistent. The due date is December 15 and you should hand a hard copy of your paper in to the International studies office, 33 Townshend Hall.
