What should I write my college essays about?

  • Last Edited: January 20, 2017

The first thing you need to do is to review your assignment guidelines and ask yourself a few basic questions:  “Is a general or specific topic required?” If the assignment guidelines require a 10-page paper on the effects of the Korean Conflict on the current stalemate, for example, this is obviously what you should write about. If no specific topic is required, you should ask yourself, “What is the general focus of the assignment?” and “What has been discussed in class?” The answers to these questions should provide some direction concerning what you should write about for this assignment. If these strategies don’t help you fine-tune a topic, you can also find some help through various academic writing centers. In general and to the maximum extent possible, however, you should write you college essays about issues that personally interest you since this will provide you with the motivation that is needed to craft an interesting paper.
