Exploring Your Interests

Having an interest in your topic can make the research and writing process much more rewarding.

  • Has anything in the course stimulated your interest?
  • Can you tie any of your personal interests to course issues, topics, or approaches for development?
  • Is there a particular angle or approach to an issue you would like to explore?

Interest is the basis of most scholarly work. Scholars study, read and write about topics that interest them. Interest is always a good starting point.
