Your task for Part 1 of the Capstone Project is to select a topic and justify your choice in the Discussion Forum by discussing the main problem or issue. This topic will be the main subject of your essay, the culmination of the Capstone Project.

It’s important to choose a topic about which you feel strongly and that is personally relevant.  You will be provided with a list of 3 controversial topics for you to choose from – all three from contemporary debates with pro- and con- arguments for both sides. For this assignment, you will review the resources for all three topics carefully before deciding on which topic you would like to work on for your capstone project essay. Please note: once you selected and committed to a topic, you will not be able to change it later, so choose wisely!
