  • Are they stable or in a state of change?

  • What would you say constitutes a "fact" in this discipline?

  • What do you consider objective and subjective data?

  • Does the discipline use experience and/or observation as evidence? If so, how?

  • What are the discipline's fundamental methods of inquiry?

  • What kinds of careers are typically open to students with this major?

  • What kinds of writing and research might they do in those careers?

    • Before beginning this paper, select a field of study that interests you--either a major discipline or a specialty area within the discipline.

    • You may want to interview professor(s) who teach in the general area or other experienced professionals who are knowledgeable on the subject. Contact the person first to see if s/he would have the time to talk to you.
