It should be between 1800 to 2000 words 

6- Referencing:

Double check that you have good citation of references both in your text and in the reference list. This applies to every work you submit to your supervisor (i.e. thesis statement, first and final drafts).

Make sure to COMPLETELY AVOID PLAGIARISM. There are two kinds of plagiarism:

  • Copying others’ work without citation (e.g. copying from a website and not mentioning that website intext and/or in the reference list).
  • Copying others’ words as if they are yours. This is when you cite the reference you quoted directly from and fail to use direct quotation: (use quotation marks if the quoted text is fewer than 40 words and an indented paragraph if the quoted text is more than 40 words). Please note that it is not acceptable to have all of your literature review section quoted directly.

Every reference you use MUST be cited twice:

In the text (e.g. in the literature review section). This can be done in two ways:

  • When copying the words of other authors, the reference is cited within the paragraph you are quoting from, right after you use quotation marks, for example: "Knowledge is fundamental" Hardy, 2002, pp. 2345.
  • When reporting the words of others in your own words, the reference is cited within the paragraph, for example:

Hardy (2002) suggests that knowledge is essential.


In his book The Importance of Knowledge, Hardy (2002) showed how knowledge is very important.

In the reference list at the end of your submitted work. Refer to the instructions for creating a reference list at the end of section (7) below.

7- Your first draft MUST INCLUDE ALL of the following sections:

  1. Title
  2. Table of Contents Abstract
  3. Introduction
  4. Literature review
  5. Significance of Research
  6. Research Question
  7. Research Methodology
  8. Ethical Consideration (Only if you are collecting C data from participants. Not required for all topics.)
  9. Limitations of the study K. Expected Results
  10. References
  11. Appendix (Only if needed. See below.)

Here is a brief description of each of these sections:


Write the title of your research proposal on the first page (cover page) with your name and academic number. The title needs to be specific. For example:

  • Language Acquisition is general
  • Language Acquisition in Saudi Arabia is still general

Using X to Improve Reading Skills of Saudi Students at the Elementary Stage (a study on students at Y school in Z city) is acceptable because it is a specific title.

Title: Analysis Of Shakespeare's Tragic Heroes: Macbeth And Othello
Length: 9 pages (2178 Words)
Style: APA



The study gives an analysis of Shakespeare’s tragic heroes that are Macbeth and Othello. It gives a detailed review of the two characters which is meant to answer the question of whether the young people can consider the two characters as being heroes by understanding the heroic significance of the two characters. Through understanding of the main themes in the play and through the consideration of the major characters in the play, it is easier for the reader to relate the situation with the current life of the proclaimed heroic figures. It is evident from the study that, the heroic characters all committed mistakes as a result of their own flaws.

Keywords: Macbeth, Othello, characters, hero, play

2.0 Introduction

Othello and Macbeth are Shakespeare’s works that depict characters that drive forward the primary theme of the play. This is one of the most popular and preferred works of Shakespeare. The characters in Tragic Heroes are not only accessible but they are also tricky based on the way they interact with one another. The way that Shakespeare’s tragic hero leads to his own destruction is the major moral of the play. Some researchers have claimed that Othello is not a hero but a mere murderer that commits a criminal act out of passion (Waters, 1994). However, the tragic hero has significantly made an error of judgment. This paper gives a comprehensive analysis of Shakespeare's Tragic Heroes: Macbeth and Othello. 

3.0 Research

Question By analysis of Shakespeare’s Tragic Heroes: Macbeth and Othello, do you consider the two characters as heroes? 

4.0 Significance of the Research

The main purpose of the study is to understand the heroic significance of Macbeth and Othello in Shakespeare’s works of Tragic Heroes. The analysis of the works in this perspective will help the reader get a better understanding of the main themes in the play through the consideration of the major characters. The study is also important because the plays come with important morals for everyday lives, especially to leaders and those considered heroes. Additionally, they must ensure they make decisions only after thoughtful consideration.

5.0 Literature Review

A significant central part of Tragic Heroes, as can be noted from Bradley, is that there are not many aspects of goodness but instead, individuals who are not only dubious but also accessible. Such include characteristics and qualities that readers may find within themselves and some other unique characters within the text while at the same time depicting an influence that puts them outside the capacity of the reader to (Bradley and Rouben Mamoulian Collection, 1950). As Bradley explains, we get to figure out that we may have never known such a guy (Bradley and Rouben Mamoulian Collection, 1950, p.20). This real nature of the misfortunes and the dauntless characters in the play makes them handy and perceptive in a setting of their importance (the lives of triumphant martial pioneer, supervisors, and monarchs) that would, in one way or another, be outside of considerable part of us. Aptly, the reader can begin to figure out and even feel for the clashes and incidences that aggravate the shambles, persisting and leading to the heinous legend that depicts this course.
