Subject areas should focus on topics listed in the syllabus. In POLS 2302, one of your topic areas must be one of the three branches of U. S. government.

Note that your three subject areas must be distinct. In other words, you cannot write on three cases studied in civil rights. Rather, one topic may be civil rights and various cases you  examine in the subject area may be in use to communicate your knowledge of the topic. The written assignment is due prior to the completion of Module 4. For this reason, information contained in Module 4 (Texas political culture, Texas history. The three branches of Texas government, or the Texas Constitution) may not be used as one or more topics in your written assignment. Citations and specific academic information gained from the course MUST be provided in both the body of the text and in the bibliography. The three subject areas you discuss MUST be from POLS 2302. They CANNOT be topics studied in POLS 2301 (i.e., parties, the media, interest groups, elections).
