Interview. You may interview a member of a major religious tradition that is new and different to the student. It is the student’s responsibility to find the subject for this interview.
Either assignment must have a research component. Your research must be done prior to the field trip or interview. Your interview questions or your field trip observations must be correlated to academic research and your sources used in your paper. The paper should be written in a standard academic essay format. If you do an interview, you must incorporate quotations from your subject. At least three academic sources must be used in addition to course readings (you may use the assigned readings from the text, but the three sources must be different and in addition to the course readings). Please review your research sources with me before doing your field trip or interview. Appropriate quotations, reference citations, and bibliography required. Three pages minimum. General writing guidelines can be found on my website. 100 points.
