How To Choose Good Persuasive Essay Topics For College Students


A persuasive essay is a paper in which you need to sound extremely convincing about your point of view on a subject. That is why the choice of a proper essay topic can be a complicated task. However, if you are experiencing problems at this very stage, you can use some simple tips that will help you choose the best winning essay topic.

  1. Determine what makes you interested in writing.
  2. The point is that if you have no interest in the things you are speaking about, your paper will be dull and boring. If they are bored to death, your teachers will hardly give you the marks you are expecting. If you can choose the topic, find the most interesting for you. If you are given one, try to find the most interesting approach to the subject.

  3. Choose an area you are knowledgeable about.
  4. If the research is not connected to a certain sphere of your specialization, try choosing an area that is more or less connected to the sphere of your interests, activities, or everyday life. It’s always better to write about things you know well.

  5. Narrow the idea down.
  6. If you are given a task to write a persuasive essay dedicated to a certain kind of sports, that’s not a topic. Narrow the idea down to something more precise and more interesting for you. For example, give attention to the most prominent representatives of this sport and their philosophy. Research the way these philosophies have influenced their success or failures.

  7. Look around yourself.
  8. Topics for good projects can be composed out of the simplest things that surround you. If you have no precise limits stated by your teacher, you are free to write about everything you choose. Even video games can push you towards some brilliant ideas.

  9. Ask your teacher.
  10. If you feel that nothing comes to your head, try turning to your teacher. The fact that you cannot find an essay topic on your own will not influence your reputation in any negative way. Though students’ independent creativity is always what teachers desire, they are ready to assist students who experience problems with their research projects.

  11. Search on the Web.
  12. There are numerous websites that offer long lists of good research topics for students. They can be found without much effort, simply with the help of your browser.
