How to Choose Essay Subjects

Often, students have no choice when it comes to essay and/or research paper assignments. Sometimes, they are given general topic areas and are allowed to select essay subjects within that area. Occasionally, however, students are given with “open range” topic. English professor may instruct students to “choose a topic and write a persuasive essay”.

When students are given options for essay subjects, choosing a topic may be one of the most important steps to be taken due to the following reasons:

  1. Students must first choose essay subjects that fall within the general parameters given. For example, if students are asked to write a persuasive essay, one should not write a descriptive piece.
  2. Students should choose essay subjects which capture their interest. Without such interest, the work may be “flat” due to lack of passion or enthusiasm.
