Southern New Hampshire University Milestone 4 Applied and Social Sciences

Business Finance

For this fourth milestone, you will analyze your popular culture artifact through the lenses of the natural and applied sciences and the social sciences. Like Milestone Two, this task provides you with an opportunity to dive deeper into your analysis of the artifact through these two lenses.

Overview: For the first part of your final project, the critical analysis portfolio, you will select an artifact from popular culture and critically analyze it through the four general education lenses: history, humanities, natural and applied sciences, and social sciences. By viewing the artifact through these lenses, you will gain insight into how the mediated nature of popular culture affects society as well as both your own individual framework of perception and the choices, attitudes, and behaviors of others in the world around you.

For this fourth milestone, due in Module Six, you will analyze your popular culture artifact through the lenses of the natural and applied sciences and the social sciences. Like Milestone Two, this task provides you with an opportunity to dive deeper into your analysis of the artifact through these two lenses. This will provide you with a chance to practice analyzing your artifact through these lenses and receive feedback on this practice attempt.

Prompt: First, review your work in Modules Five and Six, as well as the Four Lenses document from Module One. Next, analyze your popular culture artifact through the lens of the natural and applied sciences by exploring the following questions:

 How does this artifact provide a social commentary through the natural and applied sciences?

 In what ways can science help enhance an experience or understanding of your artifact?

Next, analyze your popular culture artifact through the social sciences by exploring the following questions:

 How does this artifact interact with the social sciences lens and impact social issues?

 In what ways does the social science lens help articulate a deeper understanding of the social issue(s) that inform your artifact?

Note: You are completing two separate analyses: one from the natural and applied sciences and one from the social sciences. You must submit two papers within a single Word document. Be sure to use evidence from research to support your analysis. Refer to course resources, the LibGuide for this course, and any other pertinent course resources to support your responses. Relevant current news sources may be used with instructor approval. Incorporate instructor feedback into Final Project Part One. Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:

I. Lens Analysis: In this section of your assignment, you will analyze your popular culture artifact through two of the four general education lenses.

A. Analyze your artifact through the lens of the natural and applied sciences for determining its impact on various institutions. Utilize evidence from research to support your analysis.

B. Analyze your artifact through the lens of the social sciences for determining its impact on various institutions. Utilize evidence from research to support your analysis.

Rubric Guidelines for Submission: Milestone Four should be submitted as two papers in a single Word document. The entire submission should be 2 to 4 pages in length. Use double spaced, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. Support your responses with at least two sources for each lens from the assigned course resources, or other scholarly sources located independently via the Shapiro Library. Cite your supporting sources in APA style.
