MA Research / Policy Papers
All students must complete a master’s paper and orally defend that paper before a panel of three professors. The IR Department allows students the option to chose between writing a traditional master’s research paper or writing a policy paper. Please select one of the links below for more information. These pages can also be accessed via the navigation bar on the right hand side of the page.
Past papers which were successfully defended by our students can be viewed at Mugar Library. All papers are put on reserve in Mugar Library Reserve Room and they are indexed under the course title: IR Masters Theses, and instructors: David E. Clark or Professor Erik Goldstein. They may be loaned from the library for 24 hours.
