Interesting Argumentative Essay Topics For College Students

College students have a harder time finding topics for argumentative essays because most are overused and you can’t really use ones that you used in high school.  This is the reason it is more difficult but not impossible to find interesting topics.  When you are picking an argumentative topic, you have to remember that you have to pick a topic that has at least two sides of the argument that you can argue.

It should also be on a topic that you have a little bit of knowledge on and should be something that you have at least an opinion on the topic.  Even if you don’t have an opinion on the topic but know a little bit, doing your research will help you find out which side you are on.  These kinds of essays rely on good research to support your point of view and if you don’t have good facts and information to back up your topic, you essay won’t be effective.
