Final Presentation

Each student will give one oral presentation related to their field of study. The presentation should be based on a moral claim and should be supported by outside references. It is expected both the Bible and scholarly references will be used. Successful presentations typically make use of from 10-15 references. A reference may include any citable source, e.g., reference book, textbook, specialty book, television program, news broadcast, video tape, audio tape, interviews, newspaper article. (You must be able to document your source and verify it as valid.) Note: the Bible is only one source; multiple books in the Bible do not count as multiple references. The presentations should be from 15 minutes in length, including time for questions.
