You’ve spent quite a bit of time in your English classes writing argumentative essays. You’ve even gotten pretty good at writing on the topics your instructor assigns. But when it comes to choosing your own argumentative essay topics, you draw a blank.

It’s not that there aren’t any good topics to choose from. It’s that you start over-thinking it, wondering if each topic is too cliche, overdone, or just not good enough.

Chances are, all you need to do is relax and find a topic you’re passionate about and, of course, one that’s debatable.

Why Pick Debatable Argumentative Essay Topics?

argumentative essay topics

The name of the essay says it all—argumentative. It would be a lot easier to write an essay on something that people generally agree on, certainly. But that’s not really the point of an argumentative essay.

It’s important to choose debatable argumentative essay topics. You need opposing points that you can counter with your own points.

The world isn’t black and white—there are a lot of gray areas. This is good because it means there are a lot of topics you can choose from.

I’ve listed 70 argumentative essay topics below, phrased as questions, to help get you started. I’ve separated the topics into five categories—legal, moral, social, media, and family. And I’ve even included a helpful link for each topic.

Feel free to use the topics for your own essay or as inspiration to create your own original topic.

14 Legal Argumentative Essay Topics

Argumentative essay topics about legal matters are a popular choice. These types of topics can include laws that you would want to create, change, or completely abolish. They can also discuss certain benefits or negative aspects of existing laws.

You don’t have to get super technical with legal argumentative essays. But you do need to do your research on what the current laws about your chosen topic actually say.

After all, you don’t want to suggest a changing a law that’s already been changed in the way you want.

argumentative essay topics

  1. Should cigarettes and other tobacco products be outlawed?
  2. Should prostitution be legal?
  3. Do the benefits of medical marijuana justify its legality?
  4. Is the drinking age appropriate (should it be lower, higher, or stay the same)?
  5. Should nuclear weapons be outlawed worldwide?
  6. Should the United States put more restrictions on gun ownership and use?
  7. At what age should girls have access to birth control without the consent of their parents?
  8. Should cellphone use be banned while driving?
  9. Does outlawing controlled substances only create a larger black market?
  10. Should corporations be granted personhood?
  11. Should juveniles be sentenced to life in prison?
  12. In what situations, if any, does a woman have a right to an abortion?
  13. Should restaurants be required to include calories on all menu items?
  14. Should an added tax be placed on sugary drinks, such as sodas?

14 Moral Argumentative Essay Topics

Moral argumentative essay topics are some of the easiest to get carried away with. They can cover a variety of moral dilemmas, from animal testing to the death penalty.

These topics tend to be very debatable because people have different opinions—and justifications for those opinions—on what they think is right or wrong.

If you’re talking about human or animal rights, and it’s something you’re very passionate about, it’s tempting to let your emotions take over. While it’s good to be passionate in an argumentative essay, remember to keep your thoughts focused and organized.

It’s definitely worth your time to create an outline. It helps ensure you don’t stray off topic. If you need help crafting an outline, review these two resources:

argumentative essay topics

  1. Is animal testing necessary?
  2. Should consumers buy items from countries that endorse child labor?
  3. Do patients have a right to die via physician-assisted suicide?
  4. Should children’s beauty pageants be banned?
  5. Are nude photographs appropriate in museums that are open to the public?
  6. Should schools and businesses give more incentives for people to do volunteer work?
  7. Are atheists less moral than theists?
  8. Does freedom of speech give people the right to use hate speech?
  9. Do people who commit heinous crimes deserve the death penalty?
  10. Do pre-employment drug tests infringe on personal privacy rights?
  11. Should employees be able to have visible tattoos in the workplace?
  12. Are cameras in public places an invasion of privacy?
  13. Should teens be allowed to have cosmetic surgery?
  14. Should Dreamers be allowed to stay in the United States?

14 Social Argumentative Essay Topics

Social argumentative essay topics tend to overlap with legal and moral topics. But argumentative topics deal more about how individuals act within society and what kinds of pressures society puts on individuals or groups of people.

This is a pretty broad category. There are a lot of topics to choose from and even more that you could create on your own. If you get stuck on which topic to write about, consider something that personally affects you or someone close to you.

This should make writing about that topic come more naturally. Just be sure to rely on facts and not on personal anecdotes. Such anecdotes are more appropriate to the narrative essay realm.

Remember, even though you may be writing about something that affects you personally, the argument essay isn’t usually the place for first person point of view. Most argumentative research papers require you to use third person.

argumentative essay topics

  1. Is there too much pressure on teenagers to go to college?
  2. At what age should citizens be allowed to vote in the United States?
  3. Should more rights be given to immigrants?
  4. Can heterosexual men and women truly be friends with no hopes or expectations of anything more?
  5. In what case(s) could it be considered fair for a company to not hire a candidate who smokes cigarettes?
  6. Should the United States make English the official national language?
  7. Should women wear less-revealing clothing in order to curb men’s catcalling?
  8. Do prisoners deserve the right to vote?
  9. Should there be a legal curfew for minors?
  10. Can online dating replace meeting a person in real life?
  11. Does social media create isolation?
  12. Should welfare recipients be required to submit to drug tests?
  13. Should adoptive parents be given some form of maternity leave?
  14. Can video games be a useful learning tool?

14 Advertising and Media Argumentative Essay Topics

Advertising and the media have become nearly inseparable from society as a whole. Essays written on these topics can include various angles.

For instance, you could look at how media (television, news, movies, magazines, social media, etc.) affects society. But you could also look at what should be allowed to be seen or heard through media and advertisements.

Inspiration to create your own advertising or media argumentative essay topics isn’t hard to find. Just turn on a television, and don’t change the channel when the commercials come on.

Pay close attention to all things electronic. You’ll be sure to find something debatable about what you see.

argumentative essay topics

  1. Should sex be allowed to be portrayed on prime time television?
  2. Where should networks draw the line for violence on television?
  3. Should news shows talk about celebrities?
  4. Do journalists have a duty to eliminate as much bias as possible?
  5. Is it acceptable for companies to advertise in schools?
  6. In what situations should advertisements for alcohol and tobacco products be allowed?
  7. Should warnings and side effects be made more clear in advertisements?
  8. Is print advertising obsolete?
  9. Do TV shows and movies have the responsibility of being more diverse?
  10. Are public service announcements effective?
  11. Do photoshopped images affect self-image and self-esteem?
  12. Do reality shows, such as Teen Mom, glorify teen pregnancy?
  13. Does the media create unrealistic expectations of relationships and marriage?
  14. Does the media attempt to create hype to influence or scare the public?

14 Family Argumentative Essay Topics

Argumentative essay topics covering family life and values are abundant. That’s because every family is different. Rules in families vary on a case-by-case basis, contrary to laws that govern a state or nation.

Because each family is different, it’s hard to generalize in this type of essay.

However, there’s a ton of research on child development and psychology, marital psychology, and personal stories from parents and their children. You can get enough information to make an argument for any of the topics below (or for a topic of your own).

    Thank you for these! I appreciate that you divided the topics into type!

  • Abdul

    Hello Naomi, what will be a good Hook for Argumentative essay about anti immigrants. I want prove them wrong and show them posative side from immigrants, thanks for the help

    • Hi Abdul–I’m not sure *who you’re proving wrong? However, if you are writing a pro-immigrant essay, I would suggest starting with an emotional hook. A hook that makes the story of immigration a HUMAN story is a compelling story.

      • Abdul

        Thank you for the help and the quick feedback! Please give me an example. Is the hook on the title or on the body? Thanks

        • The hook is the first sentence of your intro paragraph.

    I’m having a hard time choosing a new topic for my argumentative essay. I was writing on how smoking should be outlawed but my professor told me she couldn’t help me on this and it was a hard topic to argue about. Can you please help.

    • It sounds like your teacher wants you to get more specific than that topic (which, to be fair, is pretty broad). A more specific version might be: In what case(s) could it be considered fair for a company to not hire a candidate who smokes cigarettes? Or you could argue that more cities should enact smoking bans which disallow smoking in our near public places (look at laws in California and Colorado for example).

    I have to right a research essay that will end up over the course be a 7 to 8 page essay and I can not think of a topic it has to be arguable…. Have any idea what topic would be good?

    • The 50 topics in this post should lead you to something good. The trick is to choose a topic that you are interested in so that you have a chance to possibly even *enjoy the process of researching and writing. Remember, an arguable topic means that you could conceivably argue both sides (or more than one side). This post covers writing an argumentative thesis statement and also has more topic ideas: https://www.kibin.com/essay-writing-blog/thesis-statement-examples/

      Good luck!

      • Kerlene Churaman

        Hi Naomi. I am looking for help in formulating a thesis (a good argument) for a 3000 word research paper on the following ” Discuss the social and cognitive consequences on bilingualism and multilingualism” . Any assistance rendered would be greatly appreciated. Thank you 🙂

        • Hi Kerlene,

          A basic framework for your thesis statement will outline the points that you want to defend throughout your paper. It may look something like this:

          The social and cognitive consequences of bilingualism and multilingualism include CONSEQUENCE 1, CONSEQUENCE 2, and CONSEQUENCE 3.

          Or maybe you want to take it a step further and argue that biilingual is socially and cognitively BENEFICIAL, so your framework would be:

          The social and cognitive benefits of bilingualism and multilingualism are many and include BENEFIT 1, BENEFIT 2, and BENEFIT 3.

          Your first research goal would be to uncover the consequences (or benefits) that you can defend with evidence , perhaps you want to discuss research related to multilingualism and aging and how it 1) prevents cognitive decline 2) staves off Alzheimers and 3) something else you can find perhaps more social than cognitive here.

          Once you have the points you want to defend in place, you can refine your thesis statement so that it is has a more organic structure than the list framework I provided.

          Happy writing!
          Naomi

          • Kerlene Churaman

            Thank you so much !

          • Of course! Thanks for reading. 🙂

          • Kerlene Churaman

            Hi Naomi. I have started writing the paper. However, I am having difficulties with the organization of my paper. Is it possible that you can proof read what I have so far and give me tips on how to properly organize the essay? It would be greatly appreciated.

          • Hi Kerlene,

            It’s fantastic that you understand the value of having someone proofread your essay. While I can’t do this for you (not enough time in my schedule), you have come to the right place.

          • I can promise you that most professors are on to this trick! If you go into an essay well-prepared, you should be able to hit your word count without resorting to tricks like this, which are often more time-consuming than doing a little extra writing in the first place 🙂

    three claims right

    • Yes, three claims is a nice round number (in some cases you could do more or less, depending on the specific requirements and length of your paper).

  • Simran

    Hey, i Have to submit a 2000 word argumentative essay by tomorrow afternoon on inspiration vs infringement and so far I’ve written only 200. Could you please tell me what all points i could include?

    • Just saw this and it looks like “tomorrow afternoon” has arrived. I hope that you were able to come up with some good points. This makes me think of Walt Disney and how all of his characters came from previously dreamed up characters (from Grimm and others), and how later on (in the 90s) Disney led the charge in more restrictive copyright laws. That would be one case study I would use for a topic like this.

      Best,
      Naomi

  • That is awesome to hear. Thanks for your comment!

    • charlene

      thank you Naomi for this.

  • charlene

    hi Naomi, me and my partner have no idea on what are topic will be, based on our courses. I’m studying entrepreneurship and she is studying computer science. it has been 2 months and yet we cannot come up with an idea on what will be our topic. please help us for we are desperate. we would be so thankful if you’l help us a little bit.

    • Hi Charlene,

      I’m not quite sure what you are asking for. Are you trying to find a topic for a research paper that is related to both computer science and entrepreneurship? I hope so, because that is the question I’m attempting to answer here.

      What you choose will largely depend on where your interests are. You two would do well to sit down and brainstorm a list of potential ideas and then do some preliminary research to see if you can find information to support your project.

      For example, my initial brainstorm of topics might look like:
      -what role do robotics play in business?
      -what softwares are essential for running a scalable startup?
      -will emerging technologies lead to a jobless economy?
      -will emerging technologies lead to a new type of job market?
      -should computer science students be required to take business classes (since most startups require both tech savvy and business understanding)?

      Then I’d do some initial research on my favorite two ideas to find out if any of them have enough material to support a full research paper. For example, I found this source http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/abstract/document/5673619/?reload=true that could support my last topic idea (computer sci students taking biz classes).

      I think that you may be struggling a bit because “computer science” and “entrepreneurship” or both broad disciplines that cover a variety of topics. You might find this post helpful for you to narrow down your idea: https://www.kibin.com/essay-writing-blog/how-to-narrow-a-topic/

      You might also find this post about writing research papers helpful: https://www.kibin.com/essay-writing-blog/how-to-write-a-research-paper/

      Finally, here is an example essay that seems to crosslink the two disciplines: https://www.kibin.com/essay-examples/a-critical-review-of-electronic-networks-of-practice-and-their-relevance-for-the-entrepreneurship-field-Mv2Bvn5j

  • Clarissa Fray

    this article is great and also helped me a lot for my project….but i am currently writing a novel and i need some pointers for it…..would you be able to help???The novel is a fan-fic on the original series Percy Jackson…

    • Hi Clarissa,

      Congrats on starting the rewarding project of writing your own novel. The best advice for writing a novel is just sitting down and writing it. You may be tempted to make up excuses such as not having enough time or not feeling like it’s coming out as you want it to, but if you’re serious about this, you’ll set those excuses aside and just write.

      Your first draft does not have to be perfect. In fact it won’t be perfect. It will likely be a giant mess. So you need to be okay with that fact and just get through it. Set a word count goal for every day, and every week. A final novel is about 70,000-100,000 words so keep that in mind! It’s a marathon.

      Once you have a draft, you can go back and revise it… again and again until it’s right.

      Happy writing!

    Naomi help me please? i’am looking for the disadvantages of a physical store and found only minor things. i wanted to find a disadvantage that can put up a fight.

    • Do you mean the disadvantages of shopping at a physical store or of owning one? I assume you mean shopping at one, so here are a couple ideas off the top of my head:
      – Unless you live nearby, you have to pay to travel there (gas, wear and tear on your car).
      – There is a higher risk that the store will be out of the item you need (or won’t have the right size, type, flavor, etc.) due to limited inventory
      – Prices may be higher due to overhead costs (rent, utilities, etc.) compared to online-only establishments.

      • charlene

  • Iysma

    Hello, I’m need to write a thesis for my uni’s project this year. But, I’m having a problem with my topic, is it a good topic or not? I’m not sure, will you help me? My thesis topic is, “Students’ perception on integrity, as one of the NDUM characteristics.” *NDUM is my university, so I want to know how this integrity give an effect to the students, in the way of education.

    • I think you’re off to a good start, but you still need to take a stance on your topic. Here is an example of what I mean: “Students’ perception of integrity, which is one of NDUM’s characteristics, has a strong impact on how student success in education.” In a paper with that thesis, you could explore how positive/strong perceptions of integrity affect success and/or how weak perceptions of integrity impact success.

      Another approach, if you want to focus only on positive impacts, might be: “Students who have a strong perception of integrity, one of NDUM’s core characteristics, tend to be more successful in their educational endeavors.”

      I hope these ideas help you narrow down your topic a bit!

      Best,

    Hello.
    I’m writing a 10-12 page essay about mental health. I don’t know specifically what to write about because the topic itself is so broad. Can someone give ma an advice on this?

    • You’re right that “mental health” is a really broad topic. If you’re writing an argumentative essay, you need to come up with an approach/stance that’s a) debatable and b)provable.

      Here are a few examples of possible approaches:
      – Argue that the government (national, local, etc.) has a responsibility to increase funding for mental health initiatives
      – Should free mental health therapy be offered in schools? Argue in favor of/against.
      – Does the mental health of parents impact their children? Why or why not?

      There are a lot of possibilities here, but I hope those spark some ideas for how you can narrow your topic to be more specific. Happy writing!

      • Zane

    • That’s a long one, but you can totally do it. Just make sure to organize your ideas before you start. You might want to check out https://www.kibin.com/essay-writing-blog/argumentative-essay-outline/ . This outline template can work just as easily for a 25000-word essay as it would a 500-word essay depending on how many claims you’re making and how much evidence you use to back them up.

      Cheers!

  • Hi Leslie,

    Much respect for your decision to go back to school! What an awesome example you’re setting for your kids 🙂 I would definitely recommend that you explore some of our (many, many) other blog posts for writing help. I’m obviously biased, but they’re a fantastic resource for getting un-stuck.

    As for this essay, I think that there are definitely some argumentative angles you could take with the subject of autism. Off the top of my head:

    1. Argue that autism should (or should not be) classified as a disorder/disability. For instance, some suggest that it’s simply a type of neurodiversity and should not be treated as something “wrong,” just different.
    2. Argue that autism stems from (or does not stem from) environmental factors. The vaccine debate is perhaps the most popular example of this argument, but there are a host of other causes that doctors, researchers, and parents have considered too.
    3. Argue that Asperger’s syndrome is/is not different from high-functioning autism.

    Best of luck to you on your new adventure!

    -Erin

    Hello,uhm. I am still struggling with my argumentative essay about recycling since i was chosen to be against the said topic.I’m seeking for help how to come up with a good essay.

      Hi Dolorez,

      That certainly sounds like a tricky topic! One idea that you might consider is how recycling still requires the use of energy and machinery to recycle certain products and items. You could frame your argumentative essay as the presentation of an alternative to recycling, like up-cycling. This way, you can present another solution to the issue of pollution and litter without being stuck with “recycling is bad and here’s why”. Hope that makes sense!

    Hey peeps!

    I need to write an 5 page argumentative essay using the strategy of illustration. I need an interesting topic, suggestions?
    Additionally, I’m not sure what is meant by an illustration…is this another word for using examples?

      Hi there! This post lists a lot of great choices for argumentative essays, was there one or two that seemed appealing to you? We have another post on the same topic with different possibilities here: https://www.kibin.com/essay-writing-blog/30-argumentative-essay-ideas-will-pick-good-fight/.

      As to your question about using the illustration strategy, I can’t be 100% sure as that seems pretty specific to your classroom, however, I would guess that you’re meant to use examples or scenarios to prove your argument, similar to an illustration paper, but with the aim of convincing your reader. You might still need to do some research to understand the possible real-life examples depending on what topic you choose. For example, if you talk about the opioid crisis and why prescription drugs should be more heavily regulated, you might not have personal experience with that to draw from, but there are plenty of examples in news stories online of how this problem has affected people.

      I hope that’s helpful! I know I didn’t necessarily answer your questions, so let me know if you need more support or would like more resources on illustrative and/or descriptive essays.
