Start by brainstorming some potential topics to explore further.
Now that you have a potential topic in mind, find out a little more about it to make sure it will work for you.
Check library article databases, such as Academic Search Complete, to see if journalists or scholars have written about your topic in the popular press or academic journals.
Finally, you'll need to find the right scope for your topic. If it is too broad or too narrow, you may have difficulty covering it adequately in the length assigned for your research project.
