Rationale for An Interdisciplinary Approach Social Science Paper
The final project for this course will be a short (3-5 page) paper over a problem that might usefully be approached using an interdisciplinary approach, and specifically by using the three disciplines that comprise your General Studies program. Before you engage on this paper I would like the opportunity to provide feedback on the topic you have selected and your proposed approach to the paper.
Please submit a description of the problem that will be the focus of your paper. I am not making any restrictions on the scope of the problem. You may select a real-world topic from your experience, or you might select a much broader problem in society in general. Remember that your approach to the paper will likely be very different depending on the scope of the problem. A real world problem might have very specific actions that could be taken in attempting a solution. A general social problem is going to have general approaches to a solution. Either is acceptable.
Your outline for the paper should explain the rationale for an interdisciplinary approach to solving this problem. This will necessarily include a brief explanation of the differences among the approaches from each of the disciplines you have studied. It will also need to include a brief explanation of how using a combination of these approaches may be more fruitful than attempting a solution from a single disciplinary viewpoint.
