The research paper topic:
The academic paper is written independently under the supervision of a faculty advisor. The research paper topic and bibliography must be formulated in consultation with the faculty advisor. It is expected that students will arrange to meet with the faculty advisor a minimum of three times during the quarter to discuss progress on the research paper and internship.
All research papers must contain substantive academic content with a strong analytical focus. Your AIP research paper must:
Address a question or topic that relates to some aspect of your internship, e.g., the industry, organization, profession, practices, populations served, techniques used, etc.•
Apply the disciplinary lens of your major or minor. What kinds of questions might a sociologist, biologist, economist, artist, etc., ask in relation to your internship field?•
Incorporate outside readings/sources related to the topic. Your paper must reference scholarly books, articles, or other sources that establish a framework for your approach and/or support arguments made. Reputable websites may be used, but should be not be the only source of information. Wikipedia is not a scholarly source.•
Incorporate data and/or observations from the internship relevant to the paper topic. Be mindful of any confidentiality issues related to the use of organizational data. If in doubt, ask.•
Take an analytical approach. Avoid merely summarizing in•ternship experiences or asserting personal opinions unsupported by data or research.
Follow the writing and citation style standard for your discipline (APA, MLA, etc.). If unsure which style is appropriate, check with your faculty advisor.•
The project option:
In some cases, students submit a project in lieu of the standard research paper. Project ideas must be developed in consultation with your faculty advisor and clearly described on the Learning Agreement Form. Projects vary greatly depending on the discipline and internship and are approved by the faculty advisor on a case-by-case basis. Some general guidelines include:
The project must incorporate original thought and effort beyond the duties of your internship; the internship itself does not constitute a project.•
The effort and amount of work required for a project should be equivalent to that required for the research paper.•
The project must incorporate the use of skills and/or knowledge relevant to your internship.•
If the project does not already include a significant written component, it must be accompanied by a written analysis, with particulars identified by your faculty advisor.•
Outside research/sources must be utilized and cited.•
A Political Science major interning on a political campaign might create an in-depth, hypothetical campaign strategy for a fictitious candidate. The project would be supported and guided by outside research/sources and accompanied by a written analysis comparing/contrasting the fictitious campaign with what was observed at the internship.•
A Visual Arts: Media major interning with a local television station could produce a brief video documentary on a local issue. The accompanying paper might analyze the intention and impact of production techniques used, and how these were informed by the internship experience.•
