Essays must be at least 1200 words (not including bibliography), double-spaced, in Times New Roman 12-point font, with one-inch margins. Sources must be cited according to an official style of the student’s choosing (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.). 4) Essays must be argumentative. You should identify a position that you think needs to be challenged or modified in some way. Present the problem that you are dealing with as fairly and clearly as possible. Then, advance your own argument. Finally, raise at least one objection to your own position, and provide a response to this objection in defense of your view. Avoid “fluff,” or unnecessary statements. Everything you write should be relevant to your topic.
