Choosing a Topic for Your Argumentative Essay

Selecting the right topic is an important step in ensuring your success in writing a Argumentative essay. You’ll want to choose a topic that has the following features:

Of interest to you

Relevant

Current

Debatable 

Well-researched

Narrow in scope

Academic or “scholarly” in nature

Topics to avoid, as they are either too complex to argue in a single essay, or not considered appropriate for an academic or scholarly essay, are as follows:

The death penalty

Euthanasia or self-assisted death

Abortion 

The (il)legalization of drugs (e.g. marijuana) 

Religion or religious readings (e.g. existence of a higher order/being, or life after death)

Gun rights/rules

Global warming
