Important Note Regarding Requirements for all BSHA Assignments:

This information can be found in your first course announcement within “BSHA Course Guidelines.” All papers in all BSHA courses should be formatted and include the following:

  • Cover page:
    Make sure to include your name; session & class (e.g., JUL2017FT-BHE200); module # & assignment (e.g. Module 1 Case Assignment); professor’s name; and date of submission. Do NOT include the text of the assignment on your cover page; simply your name, course number and session, date, and assignment title will suffice. Points will be deducted under the Professionalism Criteria for missing cover page components.
  • Writing style and formatting:
    • Use a 1-inch margin and a double-spaced 12 point Times New Roman font.
    • Support your statements with evidence, not simply your opinion or feelings, because scholarly academic work builds on previous knowledge and recognizes the contributions that others have made to that knowledge.
    • Support each idea, point, or statement of fact that is not common knowledge by citations and references.
    • Academic papers should have at least 2, preferably 3 or more, scholarly and professional references (unless otherwise noted in the instructions and expectations for the assignment).
  • Include in-text citations AND a reference list for each assignment (including PowerPoint presentations):
