400 Fresh and Strong Essay Topics Ideas for Any Type of Paper

400 essay topics

High school and college assignments usually come with a set of prescribed topics you should choose from. You are asked specific questions or at least given prompts to ponder over. However, sometimes instructors decide to provide you with creative freedom. "Finally, I can write my paper the way I want, about something that I care about!" Yet wait before you celebrate. Choosing what to write about is a test in itself. Your instructor still has their own idea of what good essay topics for their class should look like and expects you to choose following some written and unwritten rules.

In this post, you will find suggestions for fitting topics grouped by essay type. You can use them as ready-made prompts or as a starting point for your brainstorming. We also give some tips on how to choose the right topic for the assignment. Pencils out!

How to Brainstorm Ideas for College Essay Topics

"Just choose whatever interests you the most!" is easier said than done. There are many factors to consider when it comes to a college essay and choosing a good topic. Here are some of the basic rules for brainstorming college essay ideas:

1. Consider your course materials

When your instructor gives you carte blanche on the topic, they still expect you to operate within certain constraints. First of all, they want you to show the skills and the knowledge you've acquired thanks to their course. If you don't know what you should write about, go through your course notes. See if there are any topics you've glossed over in class that would be interesting to develop and explore.

2. Take in all the assignment details

Even if you are free to choose your topic, you still have some guidelines, such as length, structure, techniques, or source materials that are mandatory. Look at your assignment sheet and try to figure out whether the sum of these requirements points you in a particular direction.

3. Think about what interests you

Now is the time to pick your brain. Ask yourself if anything in the circle of themes drawn by the course instructions speaks to you and piques your interest. Write down some keywords defining the general direction of your research.

4. Consider the time you have and the scope of your essay

Refine and narrow the topic down to make it fit a 5-page college essay (or however many you have.) Some problems sound exciting but are just too ambitious. It would take a dissertation to explore them exhaustively. Concentrate on one aspect of the phenomenon, smaller area, shorter period, etc.

5. Make sure your topic fits the essay type and answers the prompt question

The last thing you should do is go back to your assignment sheet and make sure the chosen topic fits all the criteria. For example, "Types of handheld weapons" is a good topic for a classification essay, but it doesn't work for an argumentative one.

Argumentative Essay Topics

Argumentative essays are the most common type of essay to write in college. However, it doesn't mean that the task is easy. It requires you to build a strong case in defense of your ideas and present factual evidence to support them.

Choosing an appropriate topic is crucial for a good argumentative essay. It must be relevant and arguable. That means people should care about it, and other opinions different from yours should exist. For example, these topics for argumentative essay fit the description:

  1. To what extent should a legal guardian of a mentally ill person govern their life?
  2. Should the USA have mandatory military conscription? Why or why not?
  3. Is the travel industry helping developing economies or exploits them? How can one travel ethically?

  26. Persuasive Essay Topics

    Persuasive essays are very similar to argumentative ones. The only difference is that they are allowed to be more emotional and can rely heavily on rhetorical devices. You still must use evidence to support your claims, but you are not restricted to stats and factoids. If something is purely a matter of opinion, you can try and change it with brilliant persuasive writing. These are some suitable topics for a persuasive essay:

  27. Are sports like boxing too violent, and should they be allowed? Why or why not?
  28. Should uniforms be worn in schools? Why or why not?
  29. Should children under 13 be allowed on social media? Why or why not?

  52. Controversial Argumentative Essay Topics

    When it comes to sensitive topics that are particularly divisive or touch taboo subjects, keeping an objective, level-headed tone of an argumentative essay is crucial. Only this way can a solution to a controversial problem be found. For example, do you think you could win over your opponents in disputes about these topics?

  53. Adolescent sexuality in media and teenage self-confidence
  54. Criminalizing abortion hurts everyone: agree or disagree?
  55. Should same-sex marriage be legal in your state?

  78. Compare and Contrast Essay Topics

    This essay genre presents its unique difficulty in the amount of preparatory work. After all, you will analyze twice as much as you typically do for an essay because you will write about two or three things in one paper. To make it manageable, you must choose comparable items and find a reason why this comparison is meaningful. For example, people think they are wildly different, when in fact, they share more similarities than meets the eye, or vice versa. Here are some examples of the topics well-chosen:

  79. Compare and contrast dystopian visions by Orwell and Huxley
  80. Compare and contrast the characters of Della from "The Gift of Magi" and Madame Loisel from "The Necklace"

  156. Personal Essay Topics

    A personal essay should be about yourself. It can center on a meaningful event in your life and rely on a narrative structure. However, it can also be more of a reflection where you ponder over one of your traits or beliefs and how you've developed it. Personal essays are very popular for various contests: admissions, scholarships, research grants, etc. Their objective is to represent you as a human being instead of a mere bundle of stats and data.

  182. Proposal Essay Topics

    A proposal essay is a paper where you suggest a specific action, a change to a policy or practice, or a solution to a problem. You must prove your proposal's relevance, highlight the benefits it will bring, and show it is practical and possible to implement. When you need a topic for a proposal, just look around.
