POSC 480 (Rittinger): Home

Plaza de Armas Miniature


Research paper (25-35 pages, 60 points). By the end of the semester you will need to submit a major research project in which you investigate a puzzle within U.S.-Latin American relations. At different points throughout the semester you are required to meet certain milestones: specifying a research question, developing an annotated bibliography, generating an outline, and finally, submitting a final draft. Along the way you will receive feedback and guidance from me. I will not accept any late essays unless you have a valid excuse (illness with proper documentation).

Annotated Bibliography Due: 4/14/17

Research Paper Outline Due: 4/28/17

Research Paper Rough Draft Due: 5/5/17 (Optional)
