Read about your Final Project research paper:

To successfully complete the Final Project research paper, the following are the minimum requirements:
The paper must be 20–25 pages in length.
The paper must follow APA format – 12 pt. font, double-spaced, indented paragraphs, citations, reference list, etc. and be submitted as a Microsoft Word document. The instructor must approve any exceptions in advance.
Include an introduction and a conclusion.
