A List Of Possible Informative Essay Topics For College Students


The most important thing to remember when you are choosing a topic for an informative essay is the fact that it must be interesting. You can inform the readers about a great number of things, but this doesn’t mean that they will be interested in them. Your paper cannot be considered successful if it doesn’t grab the audience’s attention.

Remember the factors that must be considered when choosing a topic:

  • Relevance.
  • Study the news to know what issues are the most popular at the moment. This will also help you come up with good arguments. You can draw some inspiration from online forums and even real “comment battles” that start at some popular social network communities. In fact, you can even start a few of them yourself to discuss your arguments with others and see how they hold up against opposition.

  • Personal interest.
  • If you decide to write an informative essay about something you aren’t really interested in, the paper’s tone will be dry and impersonal. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but this will make your essay seem “weaker”. When you write about something you like, your personal passion about the subject will definitely seep into your work and make it more vivid and captivating.

  • Scope.
  • Quite often students choose a topic that is either too wide or too narrow. Consider the required word count and do some preliminary research. You have to find a topic that you will be able to “fit” into these predetermined limits. Remember, filler content is unacceptable in academic papers. Every sentence you write must have a purpose.

If studying all these factors doesn’t help you come up with any interesting ideas, look at the following prompts. Hopefully, some of them can inspire you.

  1. Real causes of diabetes.
