SOC 207: The Connection Between Intelligence And Genetics (Research Proposal Sample)
Read the instructions carefully - you should notice that the proposal should be no more than 1.5 pages in length. One page is probably sufficient. There are some suggested term paper topics contained in the syllabus or the term paper instructions. You can choose one of those suggested or propose one yourself. To select a topic that is of interest to you it is a good idea to look ahead at the course units for inspiration or wait until later in the semester when we have covered some of the material before you make a choice.
The course units probably do not include all the information you will need for your paper- that is why you are asked to provide references for three academic sources in the proposal which you hope to employ in the term paper.
Let me know if you are still confused.
