In writing the Compare and Contrast Essay, the student looks at two similar yet opposing items and illustrates how they compare and contrast according to their characteristics, qualities, functions, properties and purposes, etc.

 

Listed below are several topics that can be illustrated in a Compare and Contrast Essay. They are categorized by course – with English or Writing Composition containing the most topics, since the assignment is given mostly in those two courses; however, the assignment may apply to other courses, as well. Those, too, are listed. (Note: Each topic, in this case, has two items – items that are to be compared and contrasted.)
