You will be picking a topic that interests you and is somehow related to your field of study. Remember that the thesis statement needs to be interesting, possibly provocative, significant, and narrowly enough defined so that you can actually make your case within the 12-15 page limit. APA style. This research paper is for my graduate writing course. The final isn’t due until April. An annotated bibliography (at least 12 sources) is due 2/25. The first draft is due 3/4, just the introduction section. Week after is the development section. The week after that is the conclusion. My topic would be on something related to marketing. Think something about tech companies and their branding.
