The third and final debate between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney will take place on Oct. 22 at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla.

NBC News correspondent Bob Schieffer will be the night's moderator.

Topics for the debate have been posted on the Commission for Presidential Debates website and they are as follows:

-America's role in the world
-Our longest war - Afghanistan and Pakistan
-Red Lines - Israel and Iran
-The Changing Middle East and the New Face of Terrorism - I
-The Changing Middle East and the New Face of Terrorism - II
-The Rise of China and Tomorrow's World 

Each foreign policy topic will be discussed in a 15-minute segment, according to The Blaze, and the 90-minute debate will begin at 9 p.m. Eastern Time.

Schieffer has previously moderated Bush, as well as Obama and John McCain. The following night, Oct. 23, acclaimed talk show host Larry King will moderate a debate held in Chicago for minor-party presidential candidates, which will also broadcast on the internet. The debate will include the following minority party candidates: Libertarian Party's Gary Johnson, the Green Party's Jill Stein, the Constitution Party's Virgil Goode and the Justice.

In all the presidential debates, candidates will give no opening statements but have a chance to relay a 2-minute closing statement, according to the CPD.

With reports stating that Romney won the first debate and Obama won the second, the election is a tie going into the third debate on Oct. 22. Obama needs to prove that he can make some kind of improvement in America's relations and affairs with the Middle East, and no doubt the topic of Libya and the attack on the U.S. Consolate will be revisited. Romney, on the other hand, needs to explain to Americans the new methods that he can bring to the table in the same areas of foreign policy.

Election Day 2012 is on Nov. 6.
