Choose a Topic 

There are many ways to generate topics for an assignment: 

  • Meet with your professor. They can help you generate, develop, and provide examples of suitable topics. 
  • Chat with your classmates. What are they considering? Brainstorm together to generate ideas and find out what interests you. 
  • Brainstorm! Create a mind map of keywords, ideas, items, themes, subjects, or questions you have about the topic. 
  • Browse! Look at news articles, textbooks, and reference materials (i.e. encyclopedias or Wikipedia).

Find a Topic Using Library Databases

The library has access to 2 databases that each have a bank of popular topics and accompanying resources on popular and current topics.
