Summary: The Research Project is a separate project for each student, in which the student researches a topic on the web and produces a report based on their research.


Each student will choose one topic, either from the following list or something they have a particular interest in. Several students will probably choose the same topic, but the work must be independent.

Students will submit the assignment through the Blackboard assignment submission system. It must be at least 1000 words long. Submit it as either a Microsoft Word (*.doc, *.docx), rich text (*.rtf), or plain text file (*.txt).

At the end of the report, there must be a section for works cited, and a minimum of three references must be included.

Sample Topics:

Effects of quantitative easing on food prices

Global warming – myth or reality

Debt and the Austrian School

The Dow Theory and Stock Values

Cloud Computing – Insecure convenience?

Personal encryption – should we permit it?

Cellular telephones – essential tool or infernal devices?
