The writing style is scientific. You must avoid endless sentences, long paragraphs. Sentences are impersonal, the pronoun “I” is not used (“we” is recommended if necessary). We give an example of the scientific style of presentation from the coursework in psychology: “If we treat a family as a dynamic system, then it’s entirely normal that spousal relationships go through certain stages of development that are accompanied by conflicts.”

With regard to work, remember that according to the standard, the total volume of the exchange rate should be 25-30 pages with an introduction, the main part (2 parts – theoretical and practical) and conclusion. In addition, it includes: title page, content and list of references. In turn, the list of references should include at least 30-40 sources used.

According to the existing standards, the “coursework” should be printed in 12 pt (14 pt headers) with an interval of 1.5 between lines, indents: 1.5 cm on the right, 3 cm on the left, 2 cm on the top and on the bottom. number at the top, in the center: taking into account the “title” and content (not numbered), the numbering begins with the introduction (usually 3 pages). The headings of the main chapters (centered) are recommended to be capitalized (capitalized) letters, and subsections – 14 pt, capitalized. In both cases, bold.
