SELECTING A TOPIC

When preparing to write a research paper, select a topic that

    • is appropriate to the assignment and is interesting to you
    • considers the particular perspective or academic discipline from which you'll approach it, e.g., religious, philosophical, cultural, etc.
    • is neither too broad nor too narrow

too broad: Genetic Engineering

too narrow: The Effects of Genetically Engineered Corn Grown in Iowa on Children's Health

acceptable: The Possible Health Consequences of Genetically Engineered Crops

  • has adequate information resources to support it. You may have to do some initial research to determine this or speak to a librarian.
