Theory Paper Assignment

A goal of this course is to connect theory to the real world. None of the theories we have learned about occur in a vacuum, and it is important to understand the policy implications that result from taking a theory and applying it to the real world.

You will choose a theory we have covered (or will cover) and describe the theory in detail. You will then explain some specific policy implications from the theory. Finally, you will find a news article that you feel shows an example of your chosen theory being applied.

The use of any generative Al is considered cheating WITH NO EXCEPTIONS. All papers will be processed by Turnitin upon submission and plagiarism and Al scores will be checked.
