The topic for your term paper
Where to get the topic of the term paper? Students often ask this question. Probably, it is not necessary to say that this should be a topic on the course read. If nothing comes to mind, you can ask the teacher for approximate topics of term papers (already written by previous students) and among them choose something you like on the subject. But who might like these topics? So if you took a course in chemistry than you should search for chemistry research paper topics. It feels like the students who wrote them also asked to see the topics already written, and those students who wrote them also asked the previous ones. As a result, this is some kind of hello from the 90s, if not from the 80s.
After selection, the topic is agreed with the teacher and entered in a special statement.
You can change the subject of the course! The topic should be new (contain novelty). It is possible to consider some existing facts from a new angle. Many people do this: they isolate their niche from the well-known one. “And you insert whole paragraphs from the term papers - this is permissible,” the diploma manager may later tell the student. Therefore, it is better to choose a really interesting topic and choose it with views of the diploma. The subject of a term paper, as well as a diploma, cannot be imposed. The student chooses her. Any. Only three criteria must be met. The first is, in fact, novelty.
The second is the thesis of the hypothesis that the student defends. And the third is the existing theoretical minimum (in other words, what the student will write in the bibliography). With the first and last paragraphs, it is clear, with the thesis of the hypothesis - it is somewhat more complicated. Although everything is simple if you understand the essence. For example, an abstract theme: "The work of the great composer Richard Wagner." What is the hypothesis here that Richard Wagner is a great composer? ”The teacher perplexed. Does it seem like the student doubts that the person who wrote The Ring of the Nibelung and Valkyrie is a great composer? And where is the novelty? But, here is the theme “The Swiss period in the works of Richard Wagner” - is already better. Here the thesis is that the period of Wagner's residence in Switzerland had a significant impact on the composer's work and deserves a closer look (study).
