How to make the right choice among numerous topics for dissertations

When you are writing a dissertation the “right choice” is one which you can easily write about and which fits within the guidelines of your assignment. You want to make sure that the topic you choose is one which you have a passion for and one which fits within the course assignment. If you are completing a dissertation in education then you should obviously avoid a topic that focuses on history. This is true of all courses.
