There is a term paper that you will write a 12 pages paper. This will be the topic of the paper that you will do it later typically a specific topic about your chosen ”additional” country as outlined in the syllabus.
I will also post the syllabus just to have an idea what kind of topics we are covering in-class and the description of the course.
Additional countries are : Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and slight extensions for Brunei, Mongolia, and North Korea. Also, if you have a good case to extend discussion on South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Japan or China – or other topic of related interest
Make sure you read the instruction here and in the syllabus
