Module/week 8 — homeland security & foreign policy | PADM 550 – Public Policy Analysis | Liberty University



Research Paper Instructions

In Module/Week 8, you will submit a 10–12-page paper (not including the title page, abstract, and reference page) in current APA format in which the May-Can-Should (How) approach is applied in an in-depth fashion to a policy issue of your choice.

Instead of focusing on just one policy analysis proposal, you must discuss 2, and only 2, pieces of legislation for solving your chosen policy problem. Accordingly, you must pay close attention to the grading rubric and use the Research Paper Template to properly format your paper. Both documents are provided. Also note the Policy Brief vs. Final Paper comparison document for clarification on the similarities and differences between the Final Paper and the Policy Brief.

You must include citations from:

1. All of the required reading presentations from Modules/Week 1–2,

2. The course texts, and

3. 15–20 additional scholarly sources. 

4. Please feel free to use the following link for the purposes of additional research. Not all of the sources in this link are necessarily considered “peer reviewed” or “schoalrly”, but it is a good start.Textbook Readings
