Guidelines for Senior Capstone Paper
A senior capstone paper is 2,800 words +/- 10% (these word-counts exclude footnotes).
Organize your paper as per the GRADING CHECKLIST on the next page; use subheadings to separate the main sections, and have relevant paragraphs within each section
Cite at least 4 scholarly sources, and optionally some other sources, on the main topic of your paper (this is in addition to any scholarly sources on the theoretical framework). Scholarly sources are books, typically from a university press or other major press, as well as scholarly journal articles (a journal article is typically 10-20 pages with citations and footnotes). The other sources can be less-scholarly, such as newspapers, Time, Newsweek, the internet etc.

First Submission: Nov 24, by 9 am in the morning.
Introduction (about 400 words); then sketch out your main analytical sections, writing about 6-8 sentences for each analytical section (about 400 words for all the relevant analytical sections). Use subheadings to separate each section and use paragraphs to separate each point within the section.
