Organizing Your Social Sciences Research Assignments

This guide describes how to successfully complete specific assignments commonly assigned in social sciences and behavioral sciences courses.



If you need information about how to register to vote and request a mail-in ballot from your home state in time for the upcoming 2022 general election, link to this American University Library voter guide and search under the appropriate tab:  Request a Ballot by State

NOTE: If you are from any of these states, you should do the following:

  • New Hampshire, you need to register to vote in person.
  • Wyoming, if you register to vote by mail, you will need the absentee ballot notarized.
  • Mississippi, you must get both the absentee ballot application and the ballot notarized.

Notary services are available at each of the USC Credit Union campus locations.

Purpose of Guide

This guide is intended to help college students successfully manage and complete specific assignments that are commonly used to assess student learning in social and behavioral sciences classes. Note that, if you have any questions about an assignment, you should always seek advice from your professor before you begin. Requirements set forth by your professor will always supersede advice provided under these general guidelines.

NOTE: This content was previously included with my Organizing Your Social Sciences Research Paper writing guide. The assignment pages have been removed to create this writing guide so as to make both more accessible.
