Last Minute Research Workshop: Plan Your Research

How to Choose a Topic

How do you choose a topic? Consider choosing a topic that:

  1. Meets your instructor’s criteria
  2. Is interesting to you
  3. Has plentiful research to support it

If there is little research on your topic, you will have a difficult time writing a convincing paper. You don’t want too much time to pass before you realize that there really isn’t a lot of information on your topic because your instructor may not let you change your topic.
