Assignment 2 - Research Analysis Paper

Objectives: This Assignment, in accordance with Graduate academic endeavors, provides an opportunity to skills, evaluate assimilation of course topics, and sharpen and evaluate Students’ research & critical analysis. The Assignment is driven & tested by a combination of course materials and external self-led research (depending upon essay selected); analyzed and presented in essay form. 

Type: This Assignment consists of either a single 12 page (minimum) Essay or two Short Essays instead, of 6 pages each (which total the same -12 pages) from the below list, on a variety of topics concerning terrorism and its roots. The material in all of these essays, will mostly require a combination of the course required reading materials (either done or ahead) and also self-led external research, to varying degrees. 

Format: A title page is required for each paper, in addition to the 12 pages. Format of paper: font: Ariel size 10 or Times New Roman size 12. Single line spacing. Page size: US letter size or A4. MS Word document. Paper layout: portrait or landscape as required. Title Pages required to show Student’s name and number, Assignment title, and course number. Papers may be illustrated with graphics, title and sources cited, additional to the 12 pages of text. If the 2 essays are opted for, they should be in a single document, but clearly segregated by titles. n.b. A page of text is about 600 words, so a 12 page paper amounts to about 7200 words. Check the minimum word count in your paper(s) by going (when the paper is open in MS Word) to ‘File’, ‘Properties’, and ‘Statistics’.

that, you should make clear paragraph headings of the topics, and may highlight or underline them if you wish. Source
