This course is the first of a 2-part culminating capstone experience for students in the MA in Security Studies program at UMass Lowell. Incorporating the tools learned in 44.591: Research Design and Methods, students are required to design a research question, gather and analyze information, and write a Master�s level research paper of at least 50 pages on a topic of their choosing related to security studies. The design of the 2-course capstone sequence emphasizes independent research and writing, thus required class periods are kept to a minimum.
