Advice From the Experts

We collected advice from experts with different perspectives and approaches from each of our three fields of study. In addition, papers that these experts find particularly persuasive have been included as well.

Below is some of the information compiled from students interviewing professionals in various fields of study. Each interviewee provided some helpful tips on what makes a strong argument in their field as well as an example of a strong argumentative paper.

Our results have been organized into the following fields of study:

Math and Sciences: Applied Math, Geography, City Planning, Environmental Health Activism, Forestry, Mechanical Engineering, Molecular and Cell Biology, Ornithology
Social Sciences: African American Studies, Asian American Studies, Business, Critical Race Theories, East Asian Languages and Culture, Economics, History, Journalism, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology; Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies
