20 Original PhD Dissertation Topics You Can Use for Your Project 


When you have decided to commit yourself to a project and write a dissertation assignment, the very first challenge you face is choosing an appropriate theme. This problem usually has two aspects: first, it has to correspond to what you are really interested in; second, for you to get high grades, your thesis topic has to be specific and original. For most subjects you can find a certain feature to research or a specific innovative method to approach well-known phenomena.

If you still have troubles discovering what inspires and interests you in the given field, it is always a good idea to ask your classmates or colleagues what they have chosen for their projects. This may give you an idea of what is required by your university. Then, you can ask people, successfully working in the desired industry, what they did for their researches, which aspects they focused on, what they find appealing about their current job, or what challenges they face daily. However, even when you have found out what interests you, there is still the second aspect of every thesis topic – originality.
