Unlike the Reflections, for your Analystâ€™s Paper choose a topic that relates to the materials covered during your studies of the Homeland Security world. This topic cannot be one that you wrote about in any of your courses at APUS or any other institute of higher learning. This is your opportunity to explore in-depth a topic that you have a greater interest in than what you covered during the other courses at APUS. Feel free to explore the world of Homeland Security and write about something that really interests you. Be brave and write about something that others are not going to write about, not just a typical paper on a common Homeland Security theme. Explore and enjoy.
