I am looking for an interesting topic for my upcoming senior project due in May. I need a topic that I can do a power point presentation on and that would be interactive for my classmates. The presentation has to be 45 minutes long so I really want to do something that will keep the classmates involved and interested. If you have any ideas I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

1. Begin by identifying a few general areas that interest you that might be of interest to your classmates.
2. Go to the library and browse the literature related to those areas of interest. This activity will help you become familiar with the general topic area, identify specific aspects of the general area that you might want to focus on, and help you identify a topic for which there will be adequate literature available upon which to base your presentation.
3. Once you have identifies 2 or 3 good possibilities, bounce those ideas off a few classmates and see which one strikes a chord with them.
Do NOT pick a topic simply becomes it sounds good to you. If you make that mistake, you may find that there is insufficient literature available and/or that your audience will have little interest in it.
