Looking for Advice on Picking a Topic for a UX Final Essay

Hi everybody, I’m new to the forum so apologies if this is posted in the wrong category. I’m a senior undergraduate in a Human-Computer Interaction class and I’m currently starting to research for a 5,000 word paper that is my final assignment. The paper can be on topic in HCI. I’m having difficulty thinking of topics with such a broad prompt and thought I’d ask here for some ideas! Thank you so much in advance for any advice!

You can write about

  1. UX Design & Design Thinking
  2. Designing Customer Experience
  3. Creativity in UX

thank you for the suggestions! I think the topic needs to be a bit more focused – for example my last essay was on accessibility in interface design and another classmate of mine did use of color in interface design

Ok! Then you can try

  1. Prototyping in Product Design
  2. Testing Usability of Navigation
  3. Designing new Patterns

Here are some ideas:

  • Inclusion (see Kat Holmes’s book)
  • Accessibility in Digital Products
