Thesis | U.S. Foreign Policy and National Security


The MA Thesis is an original research project appropriate for students looking to complete a longer and more academically rigorous research paper. It is particularly useful for students who plan to go on to a Ph.D. program. Much like the SRP, the Master’s Thesis is an independent research project that is intended to integrate and apply knowledge from the field to a final scholarly project. Unlike with an SRP, students will work with two faculty members.

Below is a 2012 example of an outstanding thesis by a U.S. Foreign Policy student, Inu Barbee.

"The Path to Customs Union: The European Experience and North American Integration"
