MCWP 50 & MCWP 125: Topic Development

A guide to help students in MCWP 50 and MCWP 125 complete their research papers.

Selecting and Narrowing a Topic

Selecting a good research topic can be difficult, but here are a few tips to help you narrow your focus:

  • Choose a topic that interests you. This makes it much easier to do the research and writing required for your assignments.
  • Keep the scope of your topic manageable. You don't want a topic that is so broad your sources don't relate to each other, but you also don't want a topic that is so narrow you can't find many or any sources at all.
