The Effective Thesis project aims to focus research on areas that have the potential to greatly improve the world. A lot of skilled and talented people at universities find themselves in a situation where they have to write a large final thesis (bachelor, diploma, Ph.D.) at least once during their studies. Many of them find it difficult to choose a topic and end up giving much time and effort into a paper that only serves as a means to get their degree, with almost no subsequent applications. But when there is so much energy invested in the thesis, why not choose a topic that will, on the top of gaining you a diploma, benefit and help someone else?
We have collected a list of topics from socially beneficial organizations related to the Effective Altruism community, which deal with some of the most pressing global issues. To ensure highest possible quality and utility of students’ work, we have agreed with organizations to provide consultations to students. That way students can draw from another source of information and be sure that if they write a high-quality thesis, their work and effort will be made use of to make the world a better place.
Are you a socially beneficial organization who have topics you would like to offer students to research it for you? Or do you have an idea about a research topic that would greatly improve the world? Go to our Propose page and submit it!
