Selecting Appropriate Anthropology Essay Topics

There are a few courses that truly fascinate students. Some of the favorites are psychology, sociology, mythology, and anthropology. When students take these courses, their instructors usually assign research papers and essays. Students in psychology class have an easy time picking topics because the subject is constantly evolving. Mythology research papers are difficult to create because the topic has not changed much in thousands of years. Sociology and anthropology topics are full of variety due to the special subtopics. In the anthropology field, you can research subtopics like biological, sociocultural, linguistics, theories, cultural, methods, and current events. Here are some different topics that keep students fascinated in studying humans and their past, present, and future:

  1. Differences in growth and development
  2. Race and the causes of racism
  3. Genetic engineering
  4. Differences in death rituals
  5. Definitions of culture
  6. Marriage rituals in different cultures
  7. Beliefs in magic and the supernatural
  8. Different “ranks” in society (peasants, royalty, etc.)
  9. Mythologies and its effects on modern culture
  10. The role of storytelling in different cultures
  11. Social media and its impact on cultures (first vs. second and third world)
  12. Using anthropology as a forensic science
  13. Studying twins in different cultures and throughout time
  14. Political organizations and anthropology
  15. Closed societies
  16. Heroes in societies
  17. Human evolution
  18. Aboriginal/native cultures and anthropology
  19. Gangs vs. Fraternities vs. Families
  20. Social status and role
  21. Festivals, rituals, dance, parties, music
  22. Conflicts in different cultures
  23. Education around the world
  24. Migration around the world
  25. The role of literature in human development
  26. Art and anthropology
  27. Health and wellness in different cultures
  28. Arguing for or against the purpose of IQ around the world
  29. Feminism in different cultures
  30. Emergence of terrorism and culture

The best topics are the ones that students want to research. It is easier to research a topic when you absolutely love learning more about it, because everything you read will be interesting. If you really want to make a research paper enjoyable to write, you could always try to prove the complete opposite of what you were expecting to find. Students who want to challenge themselves while writing about a fascinating topic can dig into cultures that they know little about or they can try to prove a topic that is difficult to prove. The approach you take on the anthropology paper can make it not only interesting for you, but
