Good topics for a college thesis include investigating gender discrimination in television advertisements, human behaviors after failures, factors that affect homeless rates across the United States and targeting strategies used by terrorist groups. Another good topic is the relationship between class and race in college settings.
Claremont Graduate University recommends that students choose a thesis topic that interests them. Students begin by changing three topic ideas into questions and conducting research into related topics that need more investigation. Brainstorming and free writing for 10 or 15 minutes helps students find the angle they want to investigate. Professors and academic advisers are other sources for thesis ideas.
