Subsequently, one may also ask, can you include bullet points in an essay?
Use Bullet Points and Sub-Paragraphs in Your Academic Essay. Once upon a time, bullet points and sub-paragraphs were not allowed in academic writing assignments. Make sure you know when it is acceptable to use them and when you should not implement them in your writing.
Also, how do you cite a bullet point list? In your text before the list, introduce the source with a signal phrase. Make the list single-spaced. If you change or add words, [do so in brackets]. Then include a citation after the last list item; if the list ends with a period, place your citation after that period.
Secondly, can you make a list in MLA format?
Although the Modern Language Association does not recommend using numbered lists, you can include them in your MLA formatted essay using one of several methods. Ask your professor for her preference for numbered lists.

Format for Lists
- Use a colon to introduce the list items only if a complete sentence precedes the list.
- Use both opening and closing parentheses on the list item numbers or letters: (a) item, (b) item, etc.
- Use either regular Arabic numbers or lowercase letters within the parentheses, but use them consistently.
