So, I have just under 3 days to send off my proposal for my undergraduate dissertation, although I've been making some progress I'm still struggling to find a title for my (possible) project, and am unlikely to be able to meet a lecturer/possible supervisor by the deadline.

So far, I have two main branches of psychology I'm considering - health and forensic. I'm struggling the most with health, I want to do something on either chronic pain or the elderly but I'm not sure what.

For forensic I have a more solid idea/research area, into attractiveness and offender profiling/bias, however I'm struggling to come up with a research question and full study I could do that stands out.

Any suggestions?

For forensic, you could look at previous studies that have looked at that topic. Then try to identify a gap or build-on a previous study. Authors sometimes suggest what future studies should do.

You should also look for systematic reviews on topics you are interested in. This will give you a broad overview of what has been done already and it will help you to identify gaps.

yeah I've been gathering ideas from previous studies but not found anything solid yet. I'll check out some systematic reviews though! Thanks
