The primary focus of this assignment is for the student to research and assess the issues associated with a specific emerging technology. It requires that students submit an APA-formatted, 10-page paper.
The paper must be well researched and utilize scholarly resources (minimum 5 resources)


For the project, each student will identify and explore an emerging technology. This will be a technology that may already exist but is drawing attention because of new applications, anticipated impacts, or potential controversies. Examples include:

  • Nanotechnology
  • Genetically modified organisms
  • Drones
  • Self-driving cars
  • Remote or robotic surgery
  • Wireless electricity
  • Gene editing
  • Virtual reality
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cyber-warfare
  • Hydraulic fracturing


The paper MUST include:

  • A title page, including the student’s name
  • An abstract
  • A table of contents
  • An introduction, including a clearly defined thesis statement (roughly one page)
  • An historical timeline that diagrams at least three predecessors to the emergent technology that includes a written assessment on how these technologies influenced the development of the current technology (roughly two pages)
    • Please note that the timeline should be a horizontal visual component at the beginning of the section, and the written assessment should take up a majority of the two pages.
  • An analysis of the technology's influence on society considering all of the following components (roughly four pages)
    • Social
    • Cultural
    • Political
    • Economic
    • Environmental
  • An evaluation of the ethical considerations associated with the technology in relation to its impact on humanity (roughly two pages)
  • Concluding remarks that include predictions for the future of humanity given the technology's emergence (roughly one page)
  • In-text citations and a reference section in APA format
  • Appropriate statistical graphs or visual aids to support the paper
