Developing a fresh topic for study is not an easy task. Choosing a project topic in Mass Communication requires a lot of creativity. Don’t see yourself as a dull student by just picking existing topics in the library and literally removing the name of the original adding to add your. You can think out a fresh topic or a fresh angle to an existing topic with the help of your supervisor. Otherwise you will end up doing any of these 100 over-flogged project topics.
You can call them Familiar Topics. These project topics have been written and re-written in various forms and shapes, with different case studies and areas of study. Most of these works exist in large numbers in the libraries of various departments of mass communication in Nigerian universities. Students just change the study area, or they reproduce the works and simply replace the original writer’s name with their own name. There are certainly several unexplored areas in mass communication which could be studied. But academic laziness often keeps some students repeating these topics in various ways.
If you have chosen to work on any of these topics or related areas, just note that you are likely not going to contribute anything new to knowledge except where you are exploring an obviously fresh angle to it. The topics here have specific study areas but even if you add a new study area, it is still an over-flogged, though you might claim you want to do what is called “a replicative study”. Creativity requires that you develop a relatively fresh topic and foray into a new area.
