General Tips on Brainstorming a Topic

  • Read through your assignment
  • Talk about your ideas with the professor and friends/classmates
  • Answering some of these questions can also help you think of an interesting topic:
    • What is your major?
    • What are your hobbies?
    • What are you curious about?
    • What has stood out to you in the news during the past week?

**Selecting a topic that you are interested in and want to learn more about makes the research process much less painful!
