Political Science

Welcome to the Political Science Research Guide

Welcome to the Political Science Research Guide!

This guide is intended for students writing a research paper from within the Political Science Discipline. Before continuing, enrolled students should consult CANVAS. And/or your instructor, to confirm assignment requirements and deadlines.

This guide may be particularly useful to students with little, to no experience with formal academic research and writing. The Research Paper writing process is broken into sequential steps, that may correspond to specific assignments.

This Guide helps to ensure that students and faculty are abiding by Florida State Board of Education Administrative Rule Rule 6A-10.030. “Students must complete eight credits from the designated behavioral and social sciences courses with a grade of “C” or better. To satisfy the multiple assignments criteria, each course will require that a minimum of two out-of-class writing assignments be completed and passed with a “C” or better.
