Below is a list of topics for consideration. You do not have to select any of the topics below if you don’t see anything that interests you but remember that your topic has to be related to mass communication and has to be approved by me first before you start your research. This is college! You are expected to produce a scholarly paper. This will require going to the library/doing extensive research on your topic. If you have any questions you can ask me.
