Choose a topic in your major field for advanced study in a research-heavy project, something more involved than a typical "research paper" you might do as a term paper. If your major includes a Capstone project, you could test the waters with a capstone topic here in this assignment.
State your topic as specifically as possible, using this wording: "I want to learn more about __________ because I think __________.
Example 1 : I want to learn more about Dickens's parents because I think they may be reflected in his fiction in ways not fully appreciated.
Example 2: I want to learn more about effectiveness of alternative sentencing practices in domestic violence convictions because I think alternative sentencing methods might reduce corrections expenditures and significantly improve offender rehabilitation.
