How do I choose a topic?


Sometimes paper topics are assigned by your Professors. Sometimes you are able to choose a topic yourself. If you are able to choose your own topic, consider the following:

  • It meets the requirements of your assignment
  • You find it interesting
  • It is narrow enough to find a manageable amount of information 

Tips for narrowing a topic:

  • Look at where it overlaps with other topics
  • Look at a certain aspect of it
  • Look at it within a certain time period
