How To Write An Outstanding Social Science Research Paper

You’re lucky—social science papers aren’t only fun to write, they are easier to write, easier to research, and most interesting essays to write of all academic essays.

A Plethora of Sub-Disciplines to Choose From For Topics

Another great thing about being in a large social sciences survey course is that you have a never-ending store of disciplines you can write your paper from any of the following special disciplines within the social sciences including communications, economics, law, linguistics, social work, social service, politics and political science, anthropology, environmental studies, cultural studies, criminology, geography, the media, sociology, psychology, internet and society, and history.

Being that you have such a wide array of disciplines your can write about under the larger umbrella of social science, you can write about something you are really interested in.

How Will We Communicate in 2030? New Theories

Whatever topic you choose, there are all kinds of tips I can give you for writing a great social sciences essay.


Social science topics lend themselves to drama—so you want some attention-getting sentences here as you lead toward your thesis. Get your reader’s attention and keep it by alarming them with some recent study, especially if you are talking about anything environmental.

Or, if you’re talking about the communicating in 2030 topic above—you cannot not create some drama.

Check out this introductory paragraph I wrote on the communications in 2030:

During the season finale of Weeds in 2012, the main character, Nancy, used a clear phone that she merely waved her hand above to make a phone call. Viwers were stymied wondering how she actually made the call. Did the phone sense who she wanted to call? Actually, that is not an irrational supposition—we may be communicating through . . .

The Thesis Statement

Every essay must have a thesis – a “In this essay, I’m going to discuss” type of statement. It must be clear and narrow.

Then you need three body paragraphs of evidence and a good conclusion and you’re done!

Writing a term paper

Any ideas or concepts you use while writing should be written clearly. This means try to continue your idea and provide thorough details to ensure readers don’t get lost in the text. Good sentence and paragraph structure will be helpful.

Ensure references are mentioned correctly and review citation and bibliography details. There are written samples available for each formatting style to help you compare how to reference and cite your own sources.

Know where you can get good writing examples. Consider your school library, school website, and handbooks on term paper writing and formatting. You may get ideas on how to develop your topic, thesis, and write other parts of your term paper.

A strong conclusion is important and helps bring the whole assignment together. Your main points should be mentioned briefly and consider providing clarity to a main point mentioned previously with an example. Reinstate thesis statement.
