PSY 150 Application Paper
TV SHOW: Law and Order Special Victims Unit (This is my chosen show)
General Paper Requirements:
All papers in all classes will be submitted to Safe Assign as a Word document. Please also bring a hard copy of your paper to class on the due date.
Times New Roman, Calibri, Verdana – 12 point font (yes, it has to be typed)
Cover Page:name, class and section (example: PSY150.61P), title of paper, date
Use APAformatting style (cover page, margins, citations/references – if required)
Paragraphs should be a minimum of five (5) GOOD sentences
Uploaded to Safe Assign by the beginning of class on the due date.
Minimum of three (3) double-spaced pages
PAPER MUST BE COMPLETED AND SUBMITTED IN MICROSOFT WORD (.doc or .docx file) (OR SAVED AS .rtf file). Failure to submit a Word file and/or to Safe Assign will result in a zero on the paper.
Do NOT look at movie review websites for any part of your paper. Every semester several students get a zero and end up failing the course for using lines, phrases or thoughts from a movie review website. Doing this is plagiarism, and I will be checking. It could end your college career, go on your permanent record, and/or cause failure in the course.
