Is dissertation topic selection the biggest stumbling block in your project writing?
Has the topic been rejected for the third time by your cold blooded professor?
Do you know?
In Uk on average, 47% students waste their time in topic/title selection because of such an extensive background research and literature review they have to
When I was in my university, I went through the same kind of problem and used to wonder what makes a topic, a good topic. After many years with lots of practical experience I finally found out what makes a good dissertation topic.
Note: You have read many articles on appropriate dissertations topic selection out of which 1 percent has told you something new. You can cut the mustard; all you have to do is to do something different.
Go on the opposite direction
Remember it is a comprehensive research work and not an essay writing competition where you have to opt for a topic that is of your interest. You love reading history but that is not an excuse of writing on the history of sociology. Every professor would reject it. The key is to go for the one which isn’t liked by you at all but the world wants to know about it.
Your professor would never reject it because the level of your competence, knowledge and cognition is very low than that of him and as the common notion about human psyche is that he always compare himself with the other person whether of high or low standards, which leads to general complexes as well . Anyhow, this is wrong but that is common with the professors as well.
Other way round is to be in his good books.
That said; what the world wants to know about it. First person in the world is your professor so for now, assumes him to be the world you are writing your project for. He is the one who will reject it, accept it or will ask you to modify. Now you are wondering how you will maintain interest throughout the dissertation writing process for you always hated the topic.
Have you ever watched a film that wasn’t of your interest before but after half an hour, it managed to capture your attention in it? Be honest!
Similarly that can be the case with project writing as well and if you really want to get your hands on your degree than you have to built it – by hook or by crook.
Tick all the right boxes
The target audience is the one for whom you are working your project. Thus, ticking all the right boxes with them is the key to success.
